COUNTDOWN TO CONVENTION

THE SEVEN GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Wisdom enables your heart to experience God’s presence.  As you listen and speak to God, make room for him in your heart.

Understanding  enables you to grasp the meaning of the Gospel, the Word of God, and to live it daily.  Requiring great sensitivity towards another’s feelings and seeing the situation through another’s eyes, we see all things in the light of your love.

Counsel (Right Judgment) enables you to decide how to live as a Christian should, especially at crucial or difficult moments in your life.  Making good decisions, both intellectually and with the heart, we have to do the necessary background work, look at the alternatives, study the consequences as well as seek the advice of others.

Courage (Fortitude) enables you to make difficult decisions bravely, to overcome obstacles, and, if necessary, to change your direction in life.  No matter what obstacles emerge, we have to live up to the right and just decisions we have made.

Knowledge enables you to understand the meaning of your life with others in the world and to deal with questions about death, suffering and love.  Father, allow us to have a burning desire to seek out and be open to the truth as we willingly search for it.

Reverence (Piety) enables you to love god and your neighbour, your parents, your friends, and all people who come into your life.  Our relationship with God is awakened when we treat all creation with tenderness, care and respect.

Wonder and Awe (Fear of the Lord) enables you to recognize the divine presence in your life, to pray with all your heart, and to offer praise for God’s many wonderful gifts to us.  Grant us, Almighty Father, in your presence, to see the beauty of your creation, especially in every individual.

On October 25, 2016 Senator Jane Cordy spoke in the Senate in support of palliative hospice care. Senator Cordy spoke of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada’s letter to the federal minister of health. She stated that the request within Resolution 2016.04 “is a reasonable request by the CWL that would benefit all Canadians.” Her speech may be read at www.parl.gc.ca/Content/Sen/Chamber/421/Debates/065db_2016-10-25-e.htm#2.  (scroll down a bit).
