We have been created in the image of God, we are His children. We are still infants in our faith, because we love God only by faith; we can not enjoy our relationship with Him to the fullest because we are sinners still in the flesh. To help us in our Salvation God has sent His Son Our Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins on the cross. To sanctify us He has sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within us and to teach us to know Him, love Him and serve Him.

To exist is the first gift that we become aware of, it is from God and it is eternal. The creation around us is filled with beauty and harmony, everything that God has created reflects His perfection and Glory.

We have the gift of love first from our parents, who love us and make us respond with love to them. As we grow older, we become intelligent and by reason and faith we accept God as our creator.

We have been adorned with gifts, both physical and spiritual. We have a mind to think and to reason, a body to contain all the different organs within.

The heart is a wonderful organ that beats continuously until we die, it ticks every time as if God was telling us: I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you..............

The eyes can contemplate the beauty of creation, they alert us to danger and they are wonderful companions. The nose allows us to enjoy beautiful fragrances and also warns us from bad smells. The ears help us to hear, to take part in different activities, even to enjoy music and other noises. The mouth helps us to speak and to communicate with others through the intelligence of the mind. It is also the door to our food intake, which also gives us pleasure when we eat. The arms and the legs, and in fact the whole body has been designed in such a fantastic way that it is the perfect machine. I provides us with enjoyment, it is useful, it is the place where our souls live.

We also have the senses of the soul: we must think with the mind of Christ, we must see with the eyes of the Spirit, we must listen to His Word, we must eat the bread of life that He gives us, we must speak the Word of God, we must work for the Kingdom of Heaven and we must walk along the path of His Holy Will.

Every morning as we wake up, we should bless and thank the Lord for all His blessings, because He loves us so much that we exist, we must thank the Lord that we are better off than many other disadvantaged human beings, no matter how bad we may feel at anytime.

So, we are filled with gifts. And yet these are only temporal gifts compared to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. God has wanted to sanctify us through His Spirit but He has complained that we don't even know how to deal with what does not belong to us, so how can we expect to enjoy the gifts that truly belong to us since we are His children? [Luke 16:12]

All the gifts of the Holy Spirit are ready for us as a Christmas tree surrounded by gifts. We must merit those gifts first, then we must ask for them and most important we must open them and put them to good use.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are for our sanctification and for the uplifting of the body of Christ, the Church.

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. In their fullness, they belong to Christ the perfect man, the Son of David [Isaiah 11:1-10].

There are many more gifts of the Holy Spirit as explained by St. Paul although they all derive from the seven gifts mentioned previously: [Romans 12:4-13], [1 Corinthians 12:7-11], [1 Corinthians 12:28-31], they help us to grow and and to make others grow spiritually.

For the faithful they are the Divine help that perfect virtue and aid in the edification of the body of Christ. All those who are baptised receive these gifts in small measure, we must cultivate them and make them grow by living a Christian life.
