The Holy Spirit, also called the Paraclete, is the third person of the Holy Trinity. One of its more popular symbols is that of a dove.
When we were baptised we received along with sanctifying grace and the infused virtues the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Few people truly understand the important role of the Gifts in the spiritual life. In this meditation we consider:
The announcement of the gifts in the prophecy of Isaiah
The nature of the gifts and their relationship with the virtues
The role of the gifts
How we can use each of the Gifts to better advantage in our spiritual life
We all have a daily plan for looking after our body, including regular times for eating, sleeping, exercise, entertainment, etc. But we should also have a daily plan to look after our soul. In this meditation we consider the importance of having such a plan and how we might go about making it and living it.
