Prayer: Prayer recited before the Sessions of the Second Vatican Council

Holy Spirit, enlighten our hearts. Give us light and strength to know your will, to make it our own, and to live it in our lives. Guide us by your wisdom; supports us by your power. You desire justice for all; enable us to uphold the rights of others; do not allow us to be misled by ignorance or corrupted by favor. Unite us to yourself in the bond of love and keep us faithful to all that is true. Help us to temper justice with love, so that all our decisions may be pleasing to you, and bring us the inheritance promised to good and faithful servants.
