For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding,
enlighten my mind to perceive
the mysteries of the Universe
in relation to eternity.
Spirit of Right Judgment and Courage,
guide me to make firm
in my baptismal decision
to follow Jesus' way of Love.
Spirit of Knowledge and Reverence,
help me to see the lasting value
of justice and mercy
in my everyday dealings with others.
May I respect life
as I work to solve problems
within my family and nation,
economy and ecology.
Spirit of God,
spark my Faith, Hope and Love
into new action each day.
Fill my life with Wonder and Awe
in Your Presence, which penetrates
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
