7 Gifts of Holy Spirit
(To be continued...)
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit are
Fear of the Lord
1831 (CCC)They belong in their fullness to Christ, Son of David. They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them. They make the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspirations.
The Catholic Church derives this information on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit from scripture:
"The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding; the spirit of counsel and strength; the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear; But with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. "
The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are our weaponry for the spiritual warfare of everyday life.
