Prayers

JOHN PAUL II FOR THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Holy Spirit, I ask you

for the gift of Wisdom to better know You and Your divine perfections,

for the gift of Understanding to clearly discern the spirit of the mysteries of the holy faith,

for the gift of Counsel that I may live according to the principles of this faith,

for the gift of Knowledge that I may look for counsel in You and that I may always find it in You, 

for the gift of Fortitude that no fear or earthly preoccupations would ever separate me from You,

for the gift of Piety that I may always serve Your Majesty with a filial love,

for the gift of the Fear of the Lord that I may dread sin, which offends You, O my God.

 

* Pope Saint John Paul II was taught this prayer by his father, kept it on a handwritten note, and prayed it every day for the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

* Our Way of Life *

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
