Holy Ghost Fathers

The Congregation of the Holy Spirit (full title, Congregation of the Holy Spirit under the protection of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, or in Latin, Congregatio Sancti Spiritus sub tutela Immaculati Cordis Beatissimae Virginis Mariae, and thus abbreviated C.S.Sp.) is a Roman Catholic congregation of priests, lay brothers, and since Vatican II, lay associates. Congregation members are known as Spiritans in Continental Europe, and as the Holy Ghost Fathers in English-speaking countries, although even there, they are becoming known as Spiritans.

Famous quotes containing the words holy ghost, fathers, holy and/or ghost:

    The Holy Ghost is not a Sceptic, and He has not inscribed in our hearts uncertain opinions, but, rather, affirmations of the strongest sorts.
    Martin Luther (1483–1546)

    What terrible questions we are learning to ask! The former men believed in magic, by which temples, cities, and men were swallowed up, and all trace of them gone. We are coming on the secret of a magic which sweeps out of men’s minds all vestige of theism and beliefs which they and their fathers held and were framed upon.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    You who love wild passions, flee the holy austerity of my pleasures. All here breathes of God, peace and truth.
    Jean Racine (1639–1699)

    And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
    ‘You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me!’
    Andrew Barton Peterson (1864–1941)
