Let us be in prayer for our 84 Confirmandi as they receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit Sunday November 17th @ 3pm. We welcome Bishop Conlon to the parish for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Come, Holy Spirit!
Come, strength and sweetness of God!
Come, You, movement and peace!
Renew our courage,
Fill our solitude in the world,
Create in us intimacy with God!
We no longer say, like the prophet: “Come from the four winds”,
As if we did not yet know from where you came;
We say: Come, Spirit from the pierced side of Christ upon the cross!
Come from the mouth of the Risen One!
-Father Raniero Cantalamessa
