Prayer of Pope John XXIII for the Second Vatican Council
We stand before you, Holy Spirit,
conscious of our sinfulness,
but aware that we gather in your name.
Come to us, remain with us,
and enlighten our hearts.
Give us light and strength
to know your will,
to make it our own,
and to live it in our lives.
Guide us by your wisdom,
support us by your power…
You desire justice for all;
enable us to uphold the rights of others;
do not allow us to be misled by ignorance
or corrupted by fear or favor…
As we gather in your name,
may we temper justice with love,
so that all our discussions and reflections
may be pleasing to you,
and earn the reward
promised to good and faithful servants.
