The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

We Believe in the
Holy Spirit, Lord, and
Giver of life

We receive the gift of the Holy Spirit at our Baptism. Both the prophets of the Old Testament and the disciples at Pentecost were "imbued with the Holy Spirit."

Dear Lord, I pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit in my own life. May he give me the courage and wisdom to stand up for the teachings of Christ throughout my days. May the Holy Spirit be my strength in adversity, my light in the darkness.

~ from my parish calendar for the month of March.

Please also pray for all those receiving baptism this Easter season.
