Spirit of Wisdom,
infuse into our hearts your light.
Give us clarity of speech as we proclaim
the good news.
Give us clarity of vision that we may find
our way to you.
Give us clarity of hearing that we may
recognise the cries of the needy.
Give us discerning spirits that we may
know the voice of God speaking within us.
May your joy and enthusiasm find a home
in us, that we may live in gladness of hearts.
All this we pray in Jesus’ name.

The Spirit that we have been given is not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power. Wind and fire are symbols of power. Wind has the power to move, to uproot. Fire has the power to refine and transform. The power they symbolise here is the power of God. The coming fo the Spirit provided the apostles with the energy, the courage, and the love to get on with the task Christ had given them.
We too need the Holy Spirit. We need him to help us to realise the power and the gifts we have within us. We need him to harness that power and release those gifts so that we too can become fearless witnesses for Christ.

Pray for Jim O’Sullivan, London and late of Lisdorgan; Jerry O’Mahony, Baile an Chóta and late of Ballincollig, Cork and Boston; Kathleen Uí Mhuircheartaigh, (nee O’Sullivan), Cill Maoilchéadair.
