A place to learn, mingle, and share

This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."

Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

I wanted to share this prayer that a friend sent me. After all, it says St. Peter's is a place to share! It's a beautiful one, especially that last paragraph. Please try praying it

For the gifts of the Holy Spirit

Spirit of wisdom, preside over all my thoughts, words and actions,

from this hour till the moment of my death.

Spirit of understanding, enlighten and teach me.

Spirit of counsel, direct my experience.

Spirit of fortitude, strengthen my weakness.

Spirit of knowledge, instruct my ignorance.

Spirit of piety, make me fervent in good works.

Spirit of fear, restrain me from all evil.

Spirit of peace, give me your peace.

Heavenly Spirit, make me persevere in the service of God the Father,

and enable me to act on all occasions with

goodness, patience, charity, joy, generosity,

mildness, and fidelity. Let the heavenly virtues of

modesty, continence, and chastity adorn the

temple you have chosen for your abode, and by

your all-powerful grace, preserve my soul from

the misfortune of sin.

Holy Spirit, as I awake and day begins

waken me to your presence;

waken me to your indwelling;

waken me to inward sight of you,

and speech with you

and strength from you;

that all my earthly walk may awaken into song

and my spirit leap up to you all day,

all ways.

You're welcome Kristin.

This is the best part, I think:


Holy Spirit, as I awake and day begins

waken me to your presence;

waken me to your indwelling;

waken me to inward sight of you,

and speech with you

and strength from you;

that all my earthly walk may awaken into song

and my spirit leap up to you all day,

all ways.
