‘Charis’ is the root of the word “charism” and so it means grace, or a free gift, and we recognize that charisms are free gifts of the Holy Spirit to help us live out our mission in the Church. Each of us individually has a special gift or talent that we’re given to build up the body of Christ, and so as the disciples are sent forth in the Acts of the Apostles to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ risen from the dead, they go forth under the power and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Some of us might have a charism of evangelization, some of us charisms of teaching. Whatever it might be, the Holy Spirit desires to use us.
