Baptism in the Holy Spirit was the focus during last night’s healing and prayer ministry session at St. Joseph Church. What is “baptism in the Spirit” and what does it mean for the faithful of the Church?
Baptism in The Spirit
When a baptized Christian finally gives himself over to Christ fully and sincerely in faith, God is thus allowed, given permission, to work in his soul. The graces of baptism and the activities of the Holy Spirit are thus “realized.” The experience is a powerful “flourishing” or “unfolding” of the Holy Spirit in the person in which the gifts and fruits of the Spirit are unleashed.
