  1. The Holy Spirit is received sacramentally in the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is also received one way or another through all of the Sacraments, since the Trinity is invoked in all Sacraments.

    Ultimately, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are gifts from God and he bestows those gifts on whom He wills — which is liberally, but many do not recognize, nor choose to make good use of those gifts.

    However, as with all graces, the most concentrated way to receive them is through the Sacraments of the Church, through which Christ continues to sanctify his people, and through his people, the world.
