St. James the Apostle Parish


"There are different gifts but the same spirit; there

are different ministries, but the same Lord; there 

are different works, but the same God accomplishes

all of them in everyone.

To each person, the manifestation of the spirit is

given for the common good; to one, the spirit gives

wisdom in discourse; to another, to another the power to

express knowledge; by the same spirit, another is

given the gift of healing; and still another,

miraculous powers.

Prophesy is given to one; to another that of

interpreting tongues; but it is one and the same

spirit who produces all these gifts, distributing to

each as he wills."

1 Cor. 12: 4-11
