Here's a prayer for illumination for the 1st Sunday in Advent (Year C), November 29th, 2015.
without the presence of your Holy Spirit,
we are hopelessly lost on this Advent journey.
Come to us in this place
as we gather to hear your Word.
Open our hearts to receive your Word
and our minds to understand it. Amen.
