Practically all recent translations of the Bible, both Protestant and Catholic, have preferred Holy Spirit in most instances.

I would like to thank everyone for praying for our son n law who has cancer.
There was not a treatment that worked for him until a Dr. who does gene study came up with 3 treatments that could help him.
I know prayers work.
Thank you!!

I am doing catch up on the videos for this week.
