Praise and charisms

Through baptism Christ has transformed each one of us into a new being, a being of praise to the glory of the Father.

Therefore, in the dynamic that faith, received from the Church, communicates to us, in communion with the members of the Body of Christ in Heaven and on earth, our joy is to praise our God for what He is and to thank Him for all that He does.

With hymns and songs of joy we want to sanctify the Name of God. We wish to enter into this celestial praise in anticipation of the Kingdom, thus becoming authentic witnesses of Christ through an expression of beauty, joy and fervor.

Our liturgical celebrations remain open to a charismatic expression be it spontaneous prayer, singing in tongues or a free form of praise. As we listen to the Holy Spirit, the charisms manifested are discerned for the good and the edification of all, so that the mighty be confounded by the wisdom of God.

” Whether extraordinary or simple and humble, charisms are graces of the Holy Spirit which directly or indirectly benefit the Church, ordered as they are to her building up, to the good of men, and to the needs of the world. Charisms are to be accepted with gratitude by the person who receives them and by all members of the Church as well. They are a wonderfully rich grace for the apostolic vitality and for the holiness of the entire Body of Christ, provided they really are genuine gifts of the Holy Spirit and are used in full conformity with authentic promptings of this same Spirit, that is, in keeping with charity, the true measure of all charisms.” CCC 799-800
