Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful family at St. Mary Parish and kindle in us the fire of your love. Enflame our hearts with a reverence for You, and guide us in discerning what it is You desire us to do in your Name. Accompany us on our Synodal Path. Give us Your Precious Gift of Wisdom, the grace of being able to see everything with the eyes and heart of God (Pope Francis). Increase our longing for You and give us Your Heart. In the Holy Spirit’s Power, Amen.
