Be filled with the Spirit

August 8
“Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to [n]God, even the Father…”
-Ephesians 5:18-20

At this moment

August 5
“The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of women is being acknowledged in its fullness, the hour in which women acquire in the world an influence, an effect, and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at this moment when the human race is undergoing so deep a transformation, women imbued with a spirit of the Gospel can do so much to aid humanity in not falling.”
-Closing Message, To Women,
Second Vatican Council

Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me

August 3
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
O Holy Sprit, Soul of my soul I adore Thee.
Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me.
Tell me what I ought to do, then command me to do it.
I promise to be submissive to all that Thou asks of me,
and to accept all that Thou permittest to happen to me,
only show me what is Thy will. Amen.
-Joseph Cardinal Mercier
