The Measuring Stick for Discernment

The next video in the series “How to Hear the Holy Spirit”…. Watch it and then use the reflection questions to strengthen your relationship with your beloved.

Reflection Questions:

  1. In doing an examination of conscience, is the Holy Spirit convicting me of a belief I’ve held onto that is not in agreement with Scripture and with Church teaching?
  2. What belief does my sweetheart cling to that is not aligned with Church teaching? What part have I played in this?

Note: The Holy Spirit does not convict us with a spirit of shame, but humility and a desire to purge ourselves of everything that is not holy. Where can you go to learn the truth about a belief or teaching? One good resource is the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which can be searched online.

Strengthen your relationship:
Discuss an issue that you struggle with. Why is it hard to accept the teachings of the Catholic Church on this issue? End the discussion with a prayer to the Holy Spirit asking for an increased desire to know the truth and for help in living the truth.
