By Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR
“When someone offers another person a gift, the first thing the receiver should do is acknowledge the gift, then express gratitude for it, and finally, put it to good use” (pg. 3).
But what if that gift is the greatest gift imaginable—the Holy Spirit, God himself? Father Andrew Apostoli shows us how we are to accept the gift of the Holy Spirit: we acknowledge him by knowing who he is, we thank God for his gift, and we put that gift to good use by allowing the Holy Spirit to transform and perfect us as children of God.
