Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, O Holy Spirit:
enlighten my understanding 
to know your commands;
strengthen my heart 
against the wiles of the enemy; inflame my will...
I have heard your voice, 
and I don't want to harden my heart to resisting, 
by saying 'later... tomorrow.'
Nunc coepi! Now! 
Lest there be no tomorrow for me!
O, Spirit of truth and wisdom,
Spirit of understanding and counsel,
Spirit of joy and peace!
I want what you want, 
I want it because you want it,
I want it as you want it, 
I want it when you want it.

As we continue to grow, we will continue to explore video, audio, print and social media so that St. Josemaria's message can be found and experienced vividly. Our hope is that people everywhere will have the opportunity to hear the message of St. Josemaria and accept the challenge he set forth in the first point of his spiritual classic The Way:

"Don't let your life be sterile. Be useful. Blaze a trail. Shine forth with the light of your faith and of your love ... light up all the ways of the earth with the fire of Christ that you carry in your heart."
