Monday of the Fifth Week of Easter
I am drawn closer to you this day,
knowing that I am loved by the Father and Jesus;
and from their love for me, they send the Spirit.
Grant me the grace and the patience
to quiet my life and open my heart
so I can recognize the Spirit who advocates for me
and teaches me the message given by Jesus.
Help me to know that I don't have to wait for you:
you have already come to me and make your dwelling in me.
All I have to do is become aware of your presence in my life.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
