Gifts and ministries of the All-Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit sets us all on different paths: one man lives a life of silent solitude in the desert; another prays for mankind; still another is called to minister to Christ's flock; to a fourth it is given to comfort or preach to the suffering; while yet another serves his neighbor by his goods or by the fruits of his labor - and all these are gifts of the Holy Spirit given in varying degrees: to one man thirtyfold, to another sixty and to some a hundred. If we love one another in simplicity of heart, the Lord through the Holy Spirit would show us many miracles and reveal great mysteries.
