The 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit

At Baptism, we receive seven special gifts from the Holy Spirit. These gifts are freely given to us to help us live as followers of Jesus and to build up the Body of Christ, the Church. The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are sealed and strengthened within us at Confirmation. These seven gifts help us to respond to the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, to make good choices, and to serve God and others.

 

Wisdom is the gift of knowing the right choices to make to live a holy life. The gift of wisdom helps you to avoid the things that could lead you away from God.
Understanding is the gift of comprehension, or the ability to grasp the meaning of the teachings of the Church. The gift of understanding helps you be tolerant and sympathetic of others. It helps you sense when someone is hurting or in need of compassion.
Counsel, is the gift of prudence. The gift of right judgment helps you make choices to live as a faithful follower of Jesus.
Fortitude, is the gift that helps you stand up for your faith in Christ. The gift of courage helps you overcome any obstacles that would keep you from practicing your faith.
Knowledge is the gift of knowing and enlightenment. The gift of knowledge enables you to choose the right path that will lead you to God. It encourages you to avoid obstacles that will keep you from him.
Piety, is the gift of confidence in God. This gift of reverence inspires you to joyfully want to serve God and others.
Fear of the Lord is the gift of wonder and respect that encourages you to be in awe of God. The gift of wonder and awe moves you to so love God that you do not want to offend him by your words or actions.

The 12 Fruits of the Holy Spirit

This passage in Matthew's Gospel helps us to understand the twelve Fruits of the Holy Spirit, which are the observable behaviours of people who have allowed the grace of the Holy Spirit to be effective in them.

“Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them.” (Matthew 7:17-20)

Joy: We live with joy when we recognize that true happiness comes, not from money or possessions, but from knowing and following Christ.
Peace: We are freed from worrying about trivial things because of the inner peace we experience with God in our hearts. We work and pray for peace throughout the world.

Kindness: We live the virtue of kindness by treating others as we want to be treated.
Goodness: We exhibit goodness when we honor God by avoiding sin and always trying to do what we know is right.

Chastity: We live the virtue of chastity when we use the gift of sexuality wisely, according to God’s plan.

Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River - Matthew 3

1. In due course John the Baptist appeared; he proclaimed this message in the desert of Judaea,

2. "Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is close at hand."

3. This was the man spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said: A voice of one that cries in the desert, "Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight."

4. This man John wore a garment made of camel-hair with a leather loin-cloth round his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.

5. Then Jerusalem and all Judaea and the whole Jordan district made their way to him,

6. and as they were baptised by him in the river Jordan they confessed their sins.

7. But when he saw a number of Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism he said to them, "Brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the coming retribution?"

8. "Produce fruit in keeping with repentance,

9. and do not presume to tell yourselves, We have Abraham as our father, because, I tell you, God can raise children for Abraham from these stones."

10. "Even now the axe is being laid to the root of the trees, so that any tree failing to produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown on the fire."

11. "I baptise you in water for repentance, but the one who comes after me is more powerful than I, and I am not fit to carry his sandals; he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire."

12. "His winnowing-fan is in his hand; he will clear his threshing-floor and gather his wheat into his barn; but the chaff he will burn in a fire that will never go out."
 

13. Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John.

14. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, "It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!"

15. But Jesus replied, "Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands." Then John gave in to him.

16. And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him.

17. And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, "This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him."

Bible Verses About Baptism

Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. (Matthew 28:19-20)

And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Paraclete, that he may abide with you for ever. The spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, nor knoweth him: but you shall know him; because he shall abide with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you. Yet a little while: and the world seeth me no more. But you see me: because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:16-20)

But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you. (John 14:26)

That very day about three thousand were added to their number." (Acts 2:38-41)
