Talk 9 - Charisms and Evangelization I

In this video Fr. Scott McCaig discusses specific ways the Holy Spirit empowers us to carry out this mission of evangelization -- through the 'charisms' of the Holy Spirit.

A charism is a gift given by the Holy Spirit to an individual for the good of others and the fulfillment of the mission of the Church.

He explains the place of the charisms in the spiritual life, the scriptural lists of charisms, and the different categories of charisms.

"It is not only through the sacraments and the ministries of the Church that the Holy Spirit sanctifies and leads the people of God and enriches it with virtues, but, 'allotting his gifts to everyone according as He wills', (1 Cor 12:11) He distributes special graces among the faithful of every rank." (Vatican II, Lumen Gentium, 12)

This is talk 9 of 10 in the 'School of Evangelization' formation course presented by the Companions of the Cross.
