Come, O Holy Spirit, guide us in our daily life; give us the courage to do what is good, to follow what is true, to practice justice, most of all, to love until it hurts.
So often we are focused with the flesh with the corporeal with the material aspects of life that only lead to dissension and divisions among us because of our pride and selfishness that evil thoughts form and preoccupy our minds that we eventually express in our words and then in deeds.
Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.Galatians 5:19-21
Be the "silent guest of our soul" (St. Augustine), O Holy Spirit so we may fulfill the law of Jesus Christ, the law of love; overshadow us with your fire and zeal, power and wisdom, gentleness and kindness so we may remain with Christ crucified witnessing his loving service to one another without imposing heavy burdens on them as we bring out your goodness and presence within them. Amen.
