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
to be patient, to truly listen deeply,
to hear beyond the spoken word
into the longings of the heart.
Reveal to us some connection,
that we might come to
a peaceful understanding and
an acceptance of each other.
