Oct 31: Wednesday of the 30th Week in Ordinary Time, Year I

Gianlorenzo Bernini, Holy Spirit from The Throne of Saint Peter, San Pietro, Vatican, 1657-66

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Romans 8:26-30
Responsorial Psalm: 13:4-5, 6
Gospel: Luke 13:22-30

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words (NRSV, Romans 8:26).

Let us pray.

Father, alone we are nothing. It is in the Holy Spirit given to us through the ever-present Word that we have our being, our physical life and our share in your divine life. Everything for us begins in the Holy Spirit. It is in the power of the Spirit that from the womb, when, without words or logic, we were first able to say “yes” to you and receive your gift of life. When we pray it is really the Spirit enabling us to pray just as in everything we do, especially loving and serving one another, it is the Spirit that empowers us. May we be ever responsive to the promptings of that same Holy Spirit.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
