How to Know the Holy Spirit?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church # 688 says: "The Church, a communion living in the faith of the apostles which she transmits, is the place where we know the Holy Spirit:
-- in the Scriptures he inspired;
-- in the Tradition, to which the Church Fathers are always timely witnesses;
-- in the Church's Magisterium, which he assists;
-- in the sacramental liturgy, through its words and symbols, in which the Holy Spirit puts us into com-munion with Christ;
-- in prayer, wherein he intercedes for us;
-- in the charisms and ministries by which the Church is built up;
-- in the signs of apostolic and missionary life;
-- in the witness of saints through whom he manifests his holiness and continues the work of salvation."

"It is clear therefore that, in the supremely wise arrangement of God, sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture and the Magisterium of the Church are so connected and associated that one of them cannot stand without the others. Working together, each in its own way, under the action of the one Holy Spirit, they all contribute effectively to the salvation of souls." Catechism of the Catholic Church Paragraph #95
