Good Morning Kent,

Holy Spirit is the Author of our morality.

Yes. This quote, one of my favs is from Paris Talks:
"All these divisions we see on all sides, all these disputes and
opposition, are caused because men cling to ritual and outward
observances, and forget the simple, underlying truth. It is the
outward practices of religion that are so different, and it is they
that cause disputes and enmity -- while the reality is always the
same, and one. The Reality is the Truth, and truth has no division.
Truth is God's guidance, it is the light of the world, it is love, it
is mercy. These attributes of truth are also human virtues inspired by
the Holy Spirit"
