The Gifts You’ve Been Given

“The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each for the profit of all.” 1 Cor. 12:7

The Church bestows gifts of grace through the Sacraments. In our Baptism, we share Jesus’ intimacy with the Father as daughters of God. In Reconciliation, we are forgiven, healed and more conformed to Christ. In Holy Communion, we receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus. And at Confirmation, we are sealed with 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

There are gifts of nature too- as each woman possesses the gifts of the feminine genius, that is, those attributes, traits and qualities of her femininity she shares and expresses with her love, creativity, and self-offering.

You have also been given specific gifts, particular qualities of character and virtue, as well as distinct strengths, talents and personal charisms. Realize what you have been given by God for His glory, your joy, and the building up of the Kingdom of Heaven.
