Prayer of the Day

Sixth Sunday of Easter

May 21st, 2017
Come Holy Spirit

“Jesus said; ‘I will ask the Father,  and He will give you another Advocate,  to be with you forever.  This is the Spirit of truth,  whom the world cannot receive,  because it neither sees Him nor Knows Him.'” (John 14 : 16)

Through Baptism and Confirmation we have been given the Holy Spirit,  that same Spirit who gave Christ the victory over the world.  This Advocate is our support in the difficulties of life.  The Spirit of truth convinces us of the meaning and value of the Christian way. Words once spoken over us at baptism become the words with which we bless ourselves in the name of the Trinity.
