Day 239: The Formation of Conscience (1783-1789)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise, and we call upon your name. We call upon the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. We ask for your Holy Spirit to be sent upon us this day, that we can truly know the good, and our minds be formed, our intellects, our reasons be formed to the truth. But also that our will is conformed to the good. That also we have the strength to do the good, not simply know the good, but to choose the good. And so we ask you, please, Lord God, console our conscience where we need to be consoled. Convict our conscience where we need to be convicted, and help us to become the kind of people that can live in this world, this complicated and complex world, like saints. In your name we pray. Amen”
