In the Final Prayer of the Tree of Life, Bonaventure helps his audience address the question: how does one become crucified with Christ? The answer to this question is the Holy Spirit. In addition to having an acute understanding of Christ’s Paschal mystery, the Christian should pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. According to Bonaventure and the medieval Christian tradition, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are as follows: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord. Join us this week as we discuss Bonaventure’s understanding of the Spirit’s work in the life of the Christian.
