Twenty Ninth Letter to the Filipinos

Charisms are major power gifts, supernatural and miraculous, emanating directly from the Advocate, and are classified into three categories: Revelation, Power and Vocal. The Power gifts encompass Faith, Healings and Miracles.

Charismatic Faith is broader in depth and breadth than Theological Faith because the Holy Spirit confers Theological Faith to lead to personal salvation, and Charismatic Faith primarily to serve the Mystic Body of Christ. Faith escalates from sanctifying to charismatic with a shift in perspective from personal to communal.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church asserts that, “Christ’s compassion toward the sick and his many healings of every kind of infirmity are a resplendent sign that ‘God has visited his people’ and that the Kingdom of God is close at hand. Jesus has the power not only to heal, but also to forgive sins; He has come to heal the whole man, soul and body; He is the physician the sick have need of” (1503).

A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws performed by God, and both saints and mystics endowed with the charism of Miracles by the Holy Spirit as He wills.  In the New Testament, the greatest miracle is the Resurrection of Christ, which is paramount to Christian faith.
