A few passages about what scripture teaches us about ‘unique gifts’ of the Holy Spirit?

I Corinthians 12: 4-7

Now in regard to spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware.

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.

Romans 12: 4-6

For as in one body we have many parts, and all the parts do not have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another. Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them.

What is the role of these ‘unique gifts’ of the Holy Spirit?

Pope St. John Paul II, Christifideles Laici, 24


“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)


Acts 3: 6-8

Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, [rise and] walk.” Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong. He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God.

How can discerning my charisms help me to grow in the mission of Christ and helping others?

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 not natural human abilities or strengths and not given just so that we can be volunteers at the parish for a couple of hours or even so we can be effective full-time staff.

Charisms are supernaturally empowered graces given to apostles who have a mission to bring the presence and love of Jesus Christ to a specific setting or situation.”
