In Sober Intoxication of the Spirit Part Two, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa offers new reflections on living in the power of the Holy Spirit. From personal conversion to ongoing renewal, his focus is on the source of our strength—the living action of the Spirit. Given to us at baptism and renewed in all the sacraments, the Spirit breathes life daily into the Church and to each believer. This book offers spiritual refreshment to those who are weary, encouraging us all to find restoration and comfort through the Advocate who inspires us.
