Holy Mass, The Holy Spirit

St.Phillip Neri’s Ecstacy of the Holy Spirit

St.Phillip Neri,when once begging God to give him the Holy Spirit,saw a globe of fire which entered his mouth and passed into his breast.The heat that it caused was so great that he lay prostrate on the ground and tore open his habit.He felt a wondrous joy full his soul.His heart was greatly enlarged,and two of his ribs remained broken so that his heart could beat without difficulty.He felt no pain,but when saying mass or giving Holy Communion,his joy was so great that his whole body shook and made the altar shake.Sometimes he cried out,”I cannot bear such joy!Stop Lord or I shall die”
