Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE MEANING OF THE WORD
INSPIRITUATE.


Q. 1. What does the word "inspirituate" mean?

A. 1. First of all, it should be noted that you will not find the word "inspirituate" in the dictionary. The word was coined by the webmaster of Catholic Doors Ministry.

To understand the concept behind the word "inspirituate", it is necessary to understand the meaning of the word "incarnate." The prefix in- means “in” and caro means “flesh.” So incarnate means “in the flesh.” This is the word used to indicate that God incarnated Himself in human form as a man, namely Jesus.

After having created Heaven, God created myriads of angels to serve Him. Their number was so great that it could not be counted in human terms. An angel is a soul consciousness with a spiritual body/form. Angels can see any entities that have a spiritual form. Since God the Father, a Divine Consciousness, is formless in nature, He could never be seen by an angel. To be seen by the angels, God the Father had to "inspirituate." That means that God had to reveal Himself "in a spiritual form." “God is Spirit.” [Jn. 4:24] The spiritual body of God is the Holy Spirit. As the Father has life in Himself, He granted that the Holy Spirit should also have life in Himself. While there was only One God, at this stage of creation, the angels knew two Divine Presences in God, the Father (invisible to them) and the Holy Spirit (visible to them).

In summary, the word "inspirituate" means that God revealed Himself to the angels by manifesting Himself in spiritual form, as the Holy Spirit.
