"Stir into flame the gift of God you have through the imposition of hands." These words of St. Paul to Timothy are applicable to each of us. We have been given supernatural, spiritual gifts in Baptism, in Confirmation, in marriage (for those united through the Sacrament) and in Orders (for those ordained). These gifts are poured out upon us for our sanctification and for the service of others. But like our natural gifts, they must be exercised, or in Paul's words "stir  into flame". The more we are aware of these gifts and the more we activate them, following the lead of the Holy Spirit, the more they will fulfill their purpose. Pray for the grace to so act and live.
