St. Vincent De Paul (1636): “I tremble when I think of the number of souls that live in a constant state of damnation!”
St. Aphraates, Syrian Father of the Church (336): “For from Baptism we receive the Spirit of Christ. At that same moment in which the priests invoke the Spirit, heaven opens, and He descends and rests upon the waters; and those who are baptized are clothed in Him. For the Spirit is absent all those who are born of the flesh, until they come to the water of re-birth; and then they receive the Spirit.”
