Veni Spiritus Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.” —
Dear Lord, I thank You for this day.
I thank You for my being able to wake once again, to see and to hear this morning.
I’m blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.
You have done so much for me and You continue to bless me.
Please forgive me every day for anything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you, and I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
Let me continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil.
And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive Your forgiveness.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus’ example -to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
It’s the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost and can’t find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those that don’t believe.
But I thank you are in my heart and that I do believe.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen” —

I have been thinking lately , do i make a different? do i matter ?
“But” - that word voids everything before it , so but the truth is i do i effect everything via my decisions .
Now I know I make a different but i want to know what kind . I am a building , a place where people come and go , i imagine myself as the roman coliseum once a place of great meeting but now an empty monument.
Maybe I am just having those nights , identity crisis , the am I ? and what if’s
Am I the brother of savior ? but do i make a difference God.
Lord take me by faith and drag my body across the border into waters of life , break my skull with a 2 by 4 so I can realize how great I am in you , make me cry so i can beg for greater faith and trust in you without any borders . call me from beyond my sense, holy of holy lead me into light , build my soul on a foundation of your volcanic love … holy spirit walk through my house, in the hallways, through the garden , up the stairs , dwell within rooms of my mind and consume me whole in the Eucharistic. Let me never die in evil but rise in goodness. So call me in my deafness , guide me in my blindness , carry me while i fall into your loving arms. All I ask is for something more and you are more than enough. - Joseph Nguyen
