St. John Vianney Quote About the Guidance of the Holy Spirit

With the all the stress that most of us face each day it is easy to begin to feel frustrated, alone, or even lost.  But we should never forget that the Holy Spirit is always with us, so we are never alone.  Although we may not see it at the time God is leading us every step of the way, but we have to trust Him and accept His guidance even if putting all of your faith in Him is terrifying.  He will not lead us astray.

“The Holy Spirit leads us like a mother.  He leads His child by the hand…as a sighted person leads a blind person.” – St. John Vianney

  1. Love that quote by St. John Vianney and all the stuff referencing Christ as the Light. I’ve been thinking of him like that a lot too lately after that gospel of the Man Born Blind a few weekends ago. That was a scrutiny reading for the RCIA rite so I’ve been teaching on it as well.

    I really think one of the most important aspects of the Incarnation is that Christ is the Light, the Revelation of God for us. He shines a light into the dark, earthly places and illuminates them with divinity. We would not know God as we do if we didn’t have him to show us.
