Vatican Council PrayerWe stand before you, Holy spirit, conscious of our sinfulness, but aware that we gather in your name. Come to us, remain with us, and enlighten our hearts. Give us light and strength to know your will, to make it our own and to live it in our lives.
Guide us by your wisdom, support us by your power, for you are God, sharing the glory of father and son. You desire justice for all: enable us to uphold the rights of others: do not allow us to be misled by ignorance or corrupted by fear or favour. Unite us to yourself with the bond of love and keep us faithful to all that is true.
As we gather in your nam, may we temper justice with love, so that our decisions may be pleasing to you and earn the reward promised to good and faithful servants. You live and regin with the father and Son, one God forever and ever. Amen.
