Thursday, 7th Week of Easter
Join us in praying for this special intention every day of the Pentecost Novena as the Sunday Mass obligation is set to resume for most people on May 22, 2021, Pentecost Sunday. Our special prayer intention is:
That all who have been away from the celebration of Mass because of COVID or for any other reason will return home and that our churches will be welcoming communities of faith. We pray to the Lord.
Heal our wounds–our strength renews; On our dryness pour Thy dew, Wash the stains of guilt away.
The Gift of Counsel
The gift of Counsel endows the soul with supernatural prudence, enabling it to judge promptly and rightly what must done, especially in difficult circumstances. Counsel applies the principles furnished by Knowledge and Understanding to the innumerable concrete cases that confront us in the course of our daily duty as parents, teachers, public servants, and Christian citizens. Counsel is supernatural common sense, a priceless treasure in the quest of salvation. “Above all these things, pray to the Most High, that He may direct thy way in truth.”
Come, O Spirit of Counsel, help and guide me in all my ways, that I may always do Thy holy will. Incline my heart to that which is good; turn it away from all that is evil, and direct me by the straight path of Thy commandments to that goal of eternal life for which I long.
