Spiritual Insights from Pope Francis

Categories: Advent Reflections

“Let us try asking ourselves: Am I open to the action of the Holy Spirit? Do I pray for the Holy Spirit to give me illumination, to make me more sensitive to God’s things?  This is a prayer we must pray every day: ‘Holy Spirit, make my heart open to the word of God, make my heart open to goodness, make my heart open to the beauty of God everyday.’

I would like to ask everyone a question:  how many of you pray every day to the Holy Spirit? There will not be many, but we must fulfill Jesus’ wish and pray every day to the Holy Spirit that he open our heart to Jesus.” excerpt from the Church of Mercy
