DAY FOUR MONDAY 25 MAY
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
‘Close your eyes to all the noises of the world, enter into your soul, then say’:
O Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore you. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me. Tell me what I should do; give me your orders. I promise to submit myself to all that you desire of me; and to accept all that you permit to happen to me. Let me only know your will.
4 Thou in labour rest most sweet,
Thou art shadow from the heat,
Comfort in adversity.
Watch how you live Ephesians 5.15-20
Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Reflection and Response
The Holy Spirit stimulates us to engage in relationships of charity with all people. In this way, when we love we make room for the Spirit, we allow him to express himself in fullness.
R./ Renew your wonders, Lord, in the Church of today, and in each one of us, ‘as by a new Pentecost’. Lord, hear my prayer.

O Heavenly King, O Advocate, Spirit of Truth, you who are everywhere present, filling all things; Treasury of blessings, and Giver of life; come and dwell in us, cleanse us from all impurity, and, O Good One, save our souls. Amen.
