- Lord, Renew Your Wonders: Spiritual Gifts for Today by Damian Stayne, Paperback
At the beginning of the Second Vatican Council, Blessed Pope John XXIII offered a prayer asking the Holy Spirit to Renew your wonders in our time, as though for a new Pentecost. The rediscovery of the charismatic gifts by ordinary Catholics throughout the world was an answer to that prayer. Damian Stayne, who is known internationally for his healing ministry, shows readers how spiritual gifts such as prophecy and healing were used by Jesus, the early Church, and the saints and why we need them operating in the Church today. He provides not only amazing stories of Gods presence and work in our time but also a host of practical instructions on how to grow in these gifts. This book is both inspiring and a challenge to Catholics to be open to the gifts of the Spirit in order to bring others to Christ.
