TODAY’S WORD…

.

The particular way in which the Spirit is given to each person

is for a good purpose.

One may have the gift of preaching with wisdom given him by the Spirit;

another may have the gift of preaching with instruction given him by the same Spirit;

and another

the gift of faith given by the same Spirit;

another again the gift of healing through this one Spirit;

one, the power of miracles;

another, prophecy;

another the gift of recognising spirits;

another the gift of tongues

and another the ability to interpret them.

.

All these are the work of one and the same Spirit;

who distributes different gifts to different people

as He chooses.

.

– 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

As you grow with the Holy Spirit in you,

you will begin to experience Him working in new ways so that you can serve others.

.

The Holy Spirit will equip you with spiritual gifts,

gifts which give you a new power to do His work. .

.

QUOTE…

.

“A charism [spiritual gift] is something more than a personal quality or a predisposition of which one might be gifted.

A charism is a grace, a gift lavished by God the Father, through the action of the Holy Spirit.

And it is a gift that is given to someone, not because he is better than others or because he merited it:

it is a gift that God makes so that, with the same gratuitousness and the same love,

he can put it at the service of the whole community, for the good of all.

.

[…]The very diversity of the Spirit’s gifts invites us to share them generously for the good of all,

and never to let them become a source of division.

.

Today let us ask the Lord to help us recognise with gratitude this great outpouring of spiritual gifts

which enables the Church to persevere in faith,

to grow in grace

and to be an ever more credible sign and witness of God’s infinite love.

In a particular way, may each of us consider the special gifts he or she has received,

and how we choose to use those gifts to advance the Church’s unity, life and mission in the world.”

.

– Pope Francis

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, fill me with love, joy and humility.

Guide me and use me for the glory of God.
