Please make a fortress for the Holy Spirit

At my mother and father’s home yesterday, I didn’t want to go but got obligated, I prayed the rosary sitting on the couch in the sitting room, pretending to be sleeping. Then I brought up the luminous mysteries, asking my Dad if they had been instituted after the days of his youth as a Catholic. He was reminded of praying the Rosary as a youth. I pray that he will hold on to this connection. I went over the five luminous mysteries with him and the light jumped into his eyes. I pray my mother does not interfere and secretly yearns for the Lord. They both need Him.

I pray for my son’s redemption, as he stays with them and has been reinforced in misguided beliefs.

Oh Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You. Please make a stronghold out of my mother and father’s household, fill them with your breath, blow them with your winds, and most especially guide my son right. He needs it so very much. Amen.

Gory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, most merciful Saviour of the world, we humbly beseech You, by Your most Sacred Heart, that all the sheep who stray out of Your fold may soon be converted to You, the Shepherd and Bishop of their souls, who lives and reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end.
Amen

Praying with you

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Praying with you for your intentions.

May the Lord hear your prayers for your parents.

Lord have mercy.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Praying along with your intentions…

Oh Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You. Please make a stronghold out of my mother and father’s household, fill them with your breath, blow them with your winds, and most especially guide my son right. He needs it so very much. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I just said a prayer for your family. God bless you.

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
