Come Holy Spirit, quiet my heart and my mind, as I gather with family,
friends and neighbors for the celebration of Mass.
Quiet the thoughts and distractions that keep me from worship.
Open my lips in prayer and song.
Open my ears to hear God’s Word.
Open my eyes to the mystery of the Eucharist.
Open my heart to receive Jesus with love.
May I go forth strengthened to take the Mass into my life this week.

Every movement, posture, word spoken, and thing done means something.
The more you understand about what is going on at Mass,
the more you are able to appreciate its beauty.
