Ripple Effect of Kindness

As I go through my day, please help us to be mindful of how our actions affect others. The ripple effect of kindness moves swiftly.  We will be like the stone thrown in the water that starts the movement.  Amen.

 

Prayer for the Fruits of the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit, eternal Love of the Father and the Son, kindly bestow on us the fruit of charity, that we may be united to you by divine love; the fruit of joy, that we may be filled with holy consolation; the fruit of peace, that we may enjoy tranquility of soul; and the fruit of patience, that we may endure humbly everything that may be opposed to our own desires.

Divine Spirit, be pleased to infuse in us the fruit of benignity, that we may willingly relieve our neighbor's necessities; the fruit of goodness, that we may be benevolent toward all; the fruit of longanimity, that we may not be discouraged by delay but may persevere in prayer; and the fruit of mildness, that we may subdue every rising of ill temper, stifle every murmur, and repress the susceptibilities of our nature in all our dealings with our neighbor.

Creator Spirit, graciously impart to us the fruit of fidelity, that we may rely with assured confidence on the word of God; the fruit of modesty, that we may order our exterior regularly; and the fruits of continence and chastity, that we may keep our bodies in such holiness as befits your temple, so that having by your assistance preserved our hearts pure on earth, we may merit in Jesus Christ, according to the words of the Gospel, to see God eternally in the glory of his kingdom.

 

Fill the Hearts of Your Faithful

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the Hearts of your faithful; and kindle in them the fire of your love.  Amen.

 

Let me be an Instrument of Your Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.  Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.  Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  Amen

 

Awaken Our Faith

God our Father, you sent your Son into the world to be its true light.  Pour out the Holy Spirit to awaken our faith and help us share the Gospel with others.  WE ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
