We stand before you Holy Spirit, conscious of our sinfulness, but aware that we gather in your name. Come to us, remain with us and enlighten our hearts.                                 

Give us light and strength to know your will, to make it our own and to live it in our lives. Give us your wisdom, support us by your power, for you are God, sharing the glory of Father and Son.                                                                          

You desire justice for all; enable us to uphold the rights of others; so not us allow us to be misled by ignorance or corruption by fear or favour.

Unite us to yourself in the bond of love and keep us faithful to all that is true.                    As we gather in your name, may we temper justice with love, so that all our discussions and reflections may be pleasing to you, and earn the reward promised to good and faithful servants.    

(Pope John XX111 – the prayer said by bishops before every session of the Second Vatican Council)
