Cardinal Newman’s Prayer:


“Come Holy Spirit”:


“Come Holy Spirit
Make our ears to hear
Make our eyes to see
Make our mouths to speak
Make our hearts to seek
Make our hands to reach out
And touch the world with your love.  AMEN.”

[Cardinal Newman was beatified in September 2010 by Pope John Paul II.]



St. Paul warns us against self-indulgence. Self-indulgence leads to fighting, jealousy, cruelty, meanness and revenge. Things such as these make life miserable.


St. Paul urges us to allow ourselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit. If we do, then our lives will be characterised by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are beautiful things and make life joyful.


Spirit of the living God fall afresh on us.
