The Gift of KNOWLEDGE
enables the soul to evaluate created things
at their true worth ~ in their relation to GOD.
KNOWLEDGE unmasks the pretense of creatures,
reveals their emptiness,
and points out their only true purpose
as instruments in the service of GOD.
It shows us the loving care of GOD even in adversity,
and directs us to glorify Him
in EVERY circumstance of life.
Guided by its light, we put first things first,
and prize the friendship of GOD beyond ALL else.
Knowledge is a fountain of life to him that possesses it.
COME, OH BLESSED SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE,
AND GRANT THAT I MAY PERCEIVE THE WILL OF THE FATHER;
SHOW ME THE NOTHINGNESS OF EARTHLY THINGS,
THAT I MAY REALIZE THEIR VANITY
USE THEM ONLY FOR THY GLORY
AND MY OWN SALVATION,
LOOKING EVER BEYOND THEM TO THEE
AND THY ETERNAL REWARDS.

located in Bensalem, Pennsylvania,
whose objectives are to glorify GOD,
the HOLY GHOST
and to obtain an abundance of his gifts for all.
