Unto us.

“’Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is give;’ so, too, is the grace of the Spirit given. But why should I hesitate to say that the holy Spirit also is given to us, since it is written: ‘The love of God is shed forth in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, Who is given to us.’ And since captive breasts certainly could not receive Him, the lord Jesus first led captivity captive, that our affections being set free, He might pour forth the gift of divine grace.”
St. Ambrose of Milan
