The Spirit dwells in us

“For the Holy Spirit who, in the kindness of God, thus far from our baptism, we have received from the waters of baptism, we have not received so that at one time he remains with us and at another time departs from us, but we are for him a temple, in which he continually dwells.”

St. Philoxenos of Mabbug, Memra 43 as in A Tanghe (ed & trans), ‘Memra de Philoxene de Mabboug sur I’inhabitation du Saint-Esprit’, Le Museon, 73 (1960), 39-71
