Pour upon us, O Holy Spirit, your sevenfold gifts: of understanding, that we may be enlightened; of counsel, that we may follow in your footsteps; of courage, that we may face the enemy; of knowledge, that we may discern the good; of piety, that we may be compassionate; of fear, that we may draw back from evil and of wisdom, that we may taste the sweetness of your love. Amen.

Bonaventure of Bagnoregio (1221-1274)


Gracious, loving God,
each day millions of people travel into and out of the city,
millions of mini pilgrimages
along tracks, roads, streets, canal paths,
through parks and across concrete wastes.
Bless those who travel with hope,
protect those who travel in fear,
heal those who travel in pain.
Help us to know that you travel with us
and guide us to your Son, Jesus Christ,
in whose name we pray. Amen.

Michaela Youngson, London District Chair
