Called and Gifted to Serve

Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it.
Some people God has designated in the church to be,
first, apostles;  second, prophets; third, teachers;
then, mighty deeds; then, gifts of healing, assistance,
administration, and varieties of tongues.

Are all apostles?

Are all prophets?

Are all teachers?

Do all work mighty deeds?

Do all have gifts of healing?

Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret?

Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.

About Paul Wharton

I am a cradle Catholic, a native West Virginian, and a priest since April 24, 1982. Spiritual Direction has made a tremendous difference in my life and I encourage people to try it out. My motto is "Progress not perfection." I am grateful that God has done for me what I could not do for myself.
