What Are the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit?


7. The Gift of Fear of the Lord

Commonly misunderstood as a fear of a God ready to smite us, the gift of the fear of Lord instills in us an awe and wonder at the glory and majesty of God – a fear of separating ourselves from God and offending Him as the same as a child fears offending his father. Pope Francis said that it is “is no servile fear, but rather a joyful awareness of God’s grandeur and a grateful realization that only in him do our hearts find true peace.”
