My dearly beloved, today we celebrate one of the greatest feasts: Whitsun! It is the great feast, when the Apostles were gathered around the Mother of GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT came with a mighty roaring from Heaven filling all, so that without fear they went out preaching full of fervour to the people.
One thing must be clear: no one, not even an Angel of GOD can explain to you what the FATHER is, what the SON is, what the HOLY SPIRIT is. As a child I was so annoyed, and even today I am annoyed at the way the TRINITY is most commonly depicted. For example, you see the Almightiness of GOD, the FATHER and the SON, and if you look closely, you see a tiny little Dove above them, representing the HOLY SPIRIT. I saw it differently. As a nine-year-old boy I was caught up to the Most Holy TRINITY and I first saw them in three Persons. I will be brief about it because it is impossible to describe anyway. As I have repeatedly explained, I went to the FATHER, then to the SON, and coming to the HOLY SPIRIT, His figure disappeared, the third figure, and turned into a giant fire. It was a sun, greater than all the planets together, without a beginning, without an end, and yet I was allowed to look out over it, but its sheer size was unfathomable. And when I was told to now go to the HOLY SPIRIT, I did hesitate for a moment – for a moment I did not dare to go into that fire. But being the kind of GOD He is – you cannot say no to Him – and so I just went; it was something wonderful. I felt like being wrapped in plush, like being in the divine, motherly womb of the HOLY SPIRIT.
