Yelchaninov: spiritual gifts

Wednesday, July 16, 2014
    Commemoration of Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury, 1099
    Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.
    —1 Corinthians 14:1 (NIV)
    Our help to people is often not in the system of the deliberate actions, influencing their soul, but in the invisible and unknown for us action of our spiritual gifts on them.
    ... Alexander Yelchaninov (1881-1934), Advice of Fr. Alexander Yelchaninov to Young Priests [1934], in A Treasury of Russian Spirituality, Georgii Petrovich Fedotov, ed., Nordland, 1975 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 14:1; Ps. 29:11; Pr. 2:6; Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 1:5-7; 12:4-11; Eph. 2:8-9; Phil. 1:29; 1 Tim. 4:14; Jas. 1:5,17; 4:5-6; 1 Pet. 4:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I earnestly desire a heart and mind like Yours.
