When Elizabeth saw Mary, pregnant with Jesus, she was “filled with the Holy Spirit,” and proceeded with some very enthusiastic words about the divine nature of their encounter. Enthusiasm literally means “In-Godded.” Why is it we often ignore the part the Holy Spirit plays in our spiritual journey? How do we come to know this third person of the Trinity, which mediates to us the experience of God?
