Antiphon O Spirit of Understanding, Come
Isaiah 11:2 And the Spirit of God shall rest upon this branch, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might…
O Spirit of Understanding, Come~
Take hold of our hearts.
When we simply cannot understand
the thoughts, the actions,
the motivation of another,
remind us of the wonderful uniqueness
of each person.
Give us your spirit of understanding
and help us to take time,
to be patient, to truly listen deeply,
beyond the spoken word.
Enable us to find some connection, some place
where we can come to a peaceful
understanding and an acceptance of the other.|
