Below is the text of the english translation of the holy father's Catechesis
Dear Brothers and Sisters: In our continuing catechesis on the Creed, we now consider the article which deals with the Holy Spirit: “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life”. The Creed tells us that the Spirit is “Lord”, fully God, the third person of the Blessed Trinity. He is the gift of the Risen Christ, who draws us, through faith, into communion with the Triune God. The Creed also tells us that the Spirit is the “Giver of Life”. How greatly we desire true life and the fullness of beauty, love and peace! The Holy Spirit, dwelling in our hearts, is the pure source of “living water, springing up to eternal life” which Jesus promised to the Samaritan woman. Sent by Jesus from the Father, the Spirit purifies, renews and transforms us; he grants us his sevenfold gifts and makes us children of God our Father. Even now the Holy Spirit invites us to see all things with the eyes of Christ, to recognize God’s immense love for us, and to share that love with all our brothers and sisters.
