Nine Charisms



Holy Spirit’s Gifts and Fruits comprise sanctifying gifts and fruits as spiritual manifestations of the gifts.

Knowledge and Wisdom may evolve from gifts to charisms with a shift from personal to communal for the Church’s benefit.

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve the the same Lord, and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do. The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. Some of us can speak with wisdom, while others can speak with knowledge, but these gifts come from the same Spirit. To others the Spirit has given great faith or the power to heal the sick or the power to work mighty miracles. Some of us are prophets, and some of us recognize when God’s Spirit is present. Others can speak different kinds of languages, and still others can tell what these languages mean. But it is the Spirit who does all this and decides which gifts to give to each of us.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

The Charisms are powerful and miraculous.  Revelation charisms: Knowledge, Wisdom and Discerning of Spirits; Power charisms: Faith, Healings and Miracles; and Vocal charisms: Prophecy, Tongues and Interpretation of Tongues.

“Do not neglect the gift you have, which was conferred on you through the prophetic word with the imposition of hands of the presbyterate. Be diligent in these matters, be absorbed in them, so that your progress may be evident to everyone. Attend to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in both tasks, for by doing so you will save both yourself ant those who listen to you.” (1 Timothy 4:14-16)

    This is all part of the big picture of being connected to the body of Christ, the Church, and working in cooperation with what and where the Holy Spirit wants us, individually and with our own Church communities. Therefore it is an on going process to seek in prayer, where is God spirit leading us now. I changes over the passage of time, so the gifts we use change. Our task is to be docile to the Holy Spirit follow where ever the spirit leads us. In this way we produce fruit in our lives, and help in the mission of the Church, to live and proclaim the Gospel.

    ”The passage focuses Charismas that the Holy
    Spirit may impart in each Christian”. Thank you Manuel for this beautiful post….
