Pentecost prayer: Holy Spirit dwell in me, that I may become prayer. Whether I sleep or wake, eat or drink, labour or rest, may the fragrance of prayer rise, without effort, in my heart. Purify my soul and never leave me, so that the movements of my heart and mind may with voices full of sweetness, sing in secret to God.

smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life
Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters,

Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and
