The Seal of the Gift of the Holy Spirit

Again, St. Paul teaches us, “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3:12-14). These are the gifts of the Spirit, which we can receive in God’s grace.
