Do not neglect the gift you have

St. Paul tells us today, “Do not neglect the gift you have, which was conferred on you through the prophetic word with the imposition of hands by the presbyterate.”  He is talking about the gift of the Spirit, the gift of power that takes a whole host of forms. That divine Spirit of power resides in us, and that Spirit is a great gift. Too often we neglect it, ignore it.
