CATHOLIC MINUTE — Novena to the Holy Spirit day 7, gift of Counsel. The Catholic Church has so many wonderful devotion. This Novena to the Holy Spirit is a wonderful way to unleash the power of the Sacramental life. Through baptism we have been given the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit. Now we need to cooperate with the grace of God, and ask these to be increased in our life.
The gift of Counsel endows the soul with supernatural prudence, enabling it to judge promptly and rightly what must done, especially in difficult circumstances. Counsel applies the principles furnished by Knowledge and Understanding to the innumerable concrete cases that confront us in the course of our daily duty as parents, teachers, public servants, and Christian citizens. Counsel is supernatural common sense, a priceless treasure in the quest of salvation. ‘Above all these things, pray to the Most High, that He may direct thy way in truth.’
