Views 456


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN, on Oct 05, 2022, on how the gift of counsel helps us and others in this life, increasing the virtue of prudence. This continues his series on the works of mercy and his discussion of the 1st spiritual work of mercy, giving counsel to the doubtful.

He relates  the gift of counsel to the work of the Holy Spirit, referencing Don Dolindo in his book Come Holy Spirit - https://academyoftheimmaculate.com/products/come-holy-spirit

It helps us discern what is from our nature and what is grace, my spirit, or God's

and then whether it is God's or satan's spirit

Helps to see the working of the heart, leading to purity of heart.

Enables us to abandon our own strengths and trust in God, leading to peace and deep relation to God.

Helps us to become contemplative. Example of Mother Angelica

Helps to have a devotion to Our Lady of Good Counsel, and ask for her intercession; she is the exemplar to lead all to Christ

If you want to trust in God and become holy must interiorize God's love, take it to heart, the gift of counsel
