Pray for all who have left the church, especially those in our own family.
Slowly read each line of this prayer to the Holy Spirit. Soak in each word. Following the example of Our Blessed Mother - PONDER.
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, That my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit, That my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, That I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, To defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, That I always may be holy. Amen.
"So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor 12:31-13:13
The three Theological Virtues : Faith, Hope and Love/Charity. Let us open ourselves to the Holy Spirit to allow these precious gifts from God, these gifts from our baptism, to grow in us.
Holy Spirit, please breathe, act, draw, strengthen, and guard me today and everyday.
