Who are we?

You can think: we are humans.

You can think: we are rational animals.

You can think: we are creatures of God.

You can think: we are children of God.

But, if I say: we can be just one with God.

God is three people: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Father sent the Son to earth (Galatians 4, 3 - 5):

"So too with us,
as long as we were still under age,
we were enslaved to the elemental principles of this world;
but when the completion of the time came,
God sent his Son, born of a woman,
born a subject of the Law,
to redeem the subjects of the Law,
so that we could receive adoption as sons."

The Son was generated by the Holy Spirit (Mattew 1, 18):

"This is how Jesus Christ came to be born.
His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph;
but before they came to live together
she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit."

And He sent the Holy Spirit to us (John 20, 19 - 22):

"In the evening of that same day,
the first day of the week,
the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews.
Jesus came and stood among them.
He said to them, 'Peace be with you,'
and, after saying this,
he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord,
and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you.
As the Father sent me, so am I sending you.'
After saying this he breathed on them and
said: Receive the Holy Spirit."

Now, we have the Holy Spirit because we were baptized in name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

So, let's do the Invocation of the Holy Spirit (with my free translation):

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the your faithful and lights in them the fire of your love.
Send, Lord, your Spirit and everything will be created.
And renew the World's face.
Let's us pray: Oh God, You instruct the hearts of the your faithful with the light of the Holy Spirit, do that we appreciate all the things correctly in the same Spirit and enjoy your consolation forever.
For Christ, our Lord.

Believe, you can do it!
