Prayer of the Day
O God, on this day you open the hearts of your faithful people by sending into us your Holy Spirit.
Direct us by the light of that Spirit, that we may have a right judgment in all things and rejoice at all times in your peace,
through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
The Jesus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us - sinners all.
