Torrell on Aquinas on the Holy Spirit

"A simple reading of the texts suffices to destroy the myth that [(légende selon laquelle)] our Western theology would not speak [(parlerait)] of the Holy Spirit. The opposite is true of Thomas, from whom we inherit an embarrassment of riches [(Avec Thomas au contraire nous n'avons que l'embarras du choix)]."

Jean-Pierre Torrell, O.P., "Saint Thomas d'Aquin, maître de vie spirituelle," Revue des sciences religieuses 71, no. 4 (1997): 445. I'm not quite sure what to do with that conditional (parlerait).
