Invocation: Come, Holy Spirit, empower us to fulfil your call to be witnesses to the ends of the earth and to be bearers of the Good News.

Scripture: Matthew 28:16-20; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8

‘Those who allow themselves to be led by the Holy Spirit understand that placing themselves at the service of the Gospel is not something one can say no to, because they realise how urgent it is to convey this Good News to others.’ (Pope Benedict XVI)

Prayer intention: pray for a new empowerment by the Holy Spirit so we can be effective witnesses and for a new boldness in bringing the Gospel to the whole of creation; for the work of ‘New Evangelization’ in the Church.
