A Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit
by St. Bonaventure
Lord Jesus, as God’s Spirit came down and rested upon you, may the same Spirit rest upon us,
bestowing his sevenfold gifts.
First, grant us the gift of understanding, by which your precepts may enlighten our minds.
Second, grant us counsel, by which we may follow in your footsteps on the path of righteousness.
Third, grant us courage, by which we may ward off the Enemy’s attacks.
Fourth, grant us knowledge, by which we can distinguish good from evil.
Fifth, grant us piety, by which we may acquire compassionate hearts.
Sixth, grant us fear, by which we may draw back from evil and submit to what is good.
Seventh, grant us wisdom, that we may taste fully the life-giving sweetness of your love.

“There are different types of
spiritual gifts but the same Spirit.”
7-8 p.m. Holy Hour/Divine Mercy Chapel
Most of us, at one time or
another (or, hopefully, more
frequently), have prayed that the
Holy Spirit would enlighten our
minds and guide our actions and/or
decisions. This may have been in
preparation for a test at school; a talk
with our children or family; help at
work or in seeking work; important
life decisions. Although seeking the
guidance of the Spirit in various
situations is indeed wise, listening to
the music of the Spirit within us on a
regular basis is necessary for us on a
daily basis as we live out our
Christian lives.
For myself, I went through a
long period of discerning the
movement of the Spirit within me as
I traveled my vocational journey to
ordination and into priesthood. I
find that now ordained, I seek the
guidance of the Spirit on a daily
basis even more as I live the life of
priest and pastor. From the Spirit I
seek strength, insight, grace,
patience, creativity, understanding,
compassion, wisdom, humor, and
assistance with a myriad of other
things that come into my daily life. I
have found that I cannot live well
without dancing with the Spirit, and
frequently meet with failure or
limited success when I don't follow
the Spirit's lead.
At this time of year we
celebrate many great life events such
as graduations from high school and
college, and weddings. These are
extremely important times when
enlightenment and strength from the
Spirit can lead to greater joy,
happiness, success and, ultimately,
salvation. Please pray for those
graduating and those entering into
the sacrament of marriage that they
will be open to the Spirit. Invite
them to the realization of the Spirit
active within them.
As we celebrate this great
feast of Pentecost, let each of us
pray, “Come, Holy Spirit, come!”
With love, your brother in Christ,
Fr. Phil
