Gifts of the Holy Spirit


The gift of piety helps me, to love daily God more and more, in this way I will worship him and honour him in all that I do.

How can parents encourage this gift in their children?

  • Make it a habit to go to church with the children and spend some time in front of the Blessed Sacrament
  • Teach the children how to genuflect properly and respectfully


Holy Spirit, help me grow in my love for God. Show me how I can honour God and serve God through all things I do. Amen.


Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

Saint Thérèse is a great example of living the gift of piety. She loved to follow Jesus in little simple ways. She lived a holy life by doing all things with love and childlike trust in God. In time she realized that her vocation, to serve God was to love others. Thérèse made little sacrifices each day to show her love for God.

Living it!

  • Do you have a prayer corner at home? If you do not, discuss with your parents where best to set it up. This is your little church at home.
  • When you passing by a Church, say hello to Jesus, even if only in your heart. If you have time, go inside and spend some time with Jesus.
  • Before you go to sleep, think about any sacrifices you did during the day to love God and others.
