3: Think of Counsel by thinking of Peter on Pentecost morning.
Counsel is the gift that allows us to see the will of God clearly.
In the first reading for Pentecost, we hear how speakers of several languages were all able to understand the Galilean apostles.
On Easter Sunday we heard the message they were listening to: St. Peter speaking with boldness, decisiveness, but also attractiveness, about Jesus.
He doesn’t condemn, insult or talk down to the people because of their weakness; he challenges them and calls them to greatness, each in their own language.
The Holy Spirit’s gift of Counsel gives each of us the clarity to see what God’s will is, and breaks down the barriers to articulating it.
