St. Vincent Ferrer: “Jesus Christ, who has taught us humility by His own example, conceals His truth from the proud, and reveals it only to the humble.”
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.”
