Saint Paul

Lars Lund20Saint Paul uses five important words to describe the gifts of the Holy Spirit.Spiritual (pneumatika). This means that they are of the Spirit and come from God, so they are not the same as talents.Gifts (charismata). They cannot be seen as prizes, or as something we have earned or deserved. They are freely given to those God chooses.Services (diakoniai). They are not given for our own benefit (the gift of praying in tongues is the only exception) but are to be used to help other people and to build up the Church.Powers (energemata). They are not permanent, but momentary explosions of Gods power bursting into our lives.Manifestations (thanerosa). They are visible acts, manifesting the presence, power, and holiness of God at work among His people.

Bl. John Paul II, 1992"It is not only through the sacraments and the ministries of the Church that the Holy Spirit sanctifies and leads the people of God and enriches it with virtues, but, 'allotting his gifts to everyone according as he wills' (1 Cor 12:11), he distributes special graces among the faithful of every rank. By these gifts he makes them fit and ready to undertake the various tasks and offices which contribute toward the renewal and building up of the Church" (LG 12). This is the teaching of the Second Vatican Council.

Bl. John Paul II, 1992In the one body each person must fulfill his (her) own role in accord with the charism he (she) has received. No one can claim to have received all the charisms, nor can (s)he allow himself/herself to be jealous of the charisms of others. Each person's charism must be respected and appreciated for the good of the body.
