Prayer for the Synod: Sdsumus Sancte Spiritus

We are here before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.

Come to us, guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts.

Teach us the way we must go
and show us the path to follow.

Do not allow justice to be passed over
nor let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path,
nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life
and not stray from the way of truth
nor depart what is right.

We ask this of You,
who are at work in every place and time,
through Christ our Lord.
