Novena To The Holy Spirit – Day 6 (Catholic Speakers Ken & Janelle) 2020


CATHOLIC MINUTE — Novena To The Holy Spirit Day 6 – Today we pray for the gift of Understanding (one of the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit). The gift allows us to grasp divinely revealed truths at a deeper level that leads to friendship with Jesus Christ. An example of this would be sitting a daily mass hearing the Old Testament be read and then be given the grace to the how recognize a prefigurement of something in the New Testament. Or you attended the Catholic mass and you gain a deeper realization of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, as you hear the priest say, “this is my body.”

The website of EWTN offers a good explanation the gift of knowledge: “Understanding, as a gift of the Holy Spirit, helps us to grasp the meaning of the truths of our holy religion BY faith we know them, but by Understanding we learn to appreciate and relish them. It enables us to penetrate the inner meaning of revealed truths and through them to be quickened to newness of life. Our faith ceases to be sterile and inactive, but inspires a mode of life that bears eloquent testimony to the faith that is in us; we begin to ‘walk worthy of God in all things pleasing, and increasing in the knowledge of God.’”
