The Novena of the Holy Spirit continues today with the petition to receive the gift of Knowledge: to open our hearts and minds to know our Father.
It is impossible to know a person when we make no effort to interact with them. Fruitful relationships are built in knowing each other. The same is true with God. If we want to know God, we have to make an effort to get to know him.
The gift of Knowledge empowers us to use our hearts, minds, and social faculties to seek and find God. Through prayer, meditation, and contemplation, we fall in love with him. Through the study of the Scriptures, Tradition, and teachings of the Church, we open our minds to his Word. Finally, through our interaction with others, we witness and experience his love for us.
May the Holy Spirit bless us with the gift of Knowledge today and always.
Have a blessed day!!!
