“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me.”
“For the exercise of the apostolate the Holy Spirit who sanctifies the People of God through the ministry and the sacraments gives the faithful special gifts as well ‘allotting them to each one as he wills’ (cf. 1 Cor 12:11)
Pope St. John Paul II, Christifideles Laici, 24
Take a moment right now to simply let the Holy Spirt know you have a desire to discover the special gifts he has ‘allotted’ to you.

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
Sherry Weddell, Fruitful Discipleship, p 98
“It cannot be stressed enough that charisms and vocations are supernatural realities that manifest out of an individual’s sustained relationship with Jesus. Charisms are supernaturally empowered graces given to us who have a mission to bring the presence and love of Jesus Christ to a specific setting or situation.”
The unique charisms provided to you by the Holy Spirit empowers you on his mission. Pray: Holy Spirit, help me to understand my unique charisms so I may live out the mission of Christ in my daily life.
I Cor 12: 1-11:
“Now in regard to the spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware. There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.”
Pope St. John Paul II, Christifideles Laici, 58
“To be able to discover the actual will of the Lord in our lives always involves a faithful discernment of the gifts and talents given by God”
Do you have a desire to discover and discern the unique ‘gifts’ the Holy Spirit has provided to you for the mission of Christ?
