A Guide for Catholics and others wanting to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit in everyday life. By Deacon Michael R. Wesley, M.A., M.T.S. The word “L.I.G.H.T.” is an acronym for Living in the Gifts of the Holy Trinity. The purpose of the seminar is to acquaint Catholics and others with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I say “others” because the seminar might also be of interest to non-Catholics. I mention “Catholics” specifically because there are many Catholics today who are set on fire with their experience of God’s presence and His love. Through movements such as the ACTS retreat, Cursillo, RCIA, and youth retreats, as well as just through their Catholic faith, they are experiencing the fire of the Holy Spirit in their lives. And what this fire of the Holy Spirit has created is a thirst to share their faith with others. This is all very good because it is through witnessing the power of the Holy Spirit that the secular world will be drawn to God. One thing I see lacking, though, is an emphasis on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Most Catholics who have received the sacrament of confirmation know they have received gifts of the Holy Spirit. But what is missing is an understanding of what many of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are, and how they can be used in everyday life.
