Thought of the Day March 19, 2018 Special gifts

By 9:53 AM

“There is a general rule concerning all special graces granted to any human being. Whenever the divine favor chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand.” ( St. Bernadine of Siena) This is especially true of St. Joseph. God chose him to be the protector and provider for Mary and the child, Jesus, without the full right of husband and father. It is also true of each of us, no matter our vocation in life. God equips those he calls with all that is needed to fulfill the call, not only with natural gifts but also with the special gifts of the Holy Spirit. For our vocation is not only a natural call but a spiritual one as well, leading to holiness of life and union with God. Thank you, Lord, for my vocation and the many accompanying gifts.
