Chaplain's Reflections - 24th May 2024

As our young people continue to work incredibly hard preparing for and sitting exams, let us continue to pray for their success. After celebrating Pentecost last Sunday, let us pray for the gifts of the spirit to be bestowed upon all our young people so that they may feel the Lord’s guiding arm and loving embrace: 

Christ Jesus, 

before ascending into heaven, 

You promised to send the Holy Spirit 

to Your apostles and disciples. 

Grant that the same Spirit 

may perfect in our lives the work of Your 

grace and love. 

Grant us the Spirit of Fear of The Lord 

that we may be filled with a loving reverence 

toward You. 

The Spirit of Piety 

that we may find peace and fulfilment 

in the service of God while serving others; 

The Spirit of Fortitude 

that we may bear our cross with You 

and, with courage, overcome the obstacles 

that interfere with our salvation; 

The Spirit of Knowledge 

that we may know You and know ourselves 

and grow in holiness; 

The Spirit of Understanding 

to enlighten our minds 

with the light of Your truth; 

The Spirit of Counsel 

that we may choose the surest way of doing 

Your will, seeking first the Kingdom; 

Grant us the Spirit of Wisdom 

that we may aspire to the things that last 


Teach us to be Your faithful disciples 

and animate us in every way with Your Spirit.
