Again, [amen,] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.-Matthew 18:19, usccb.org
Jesus said to them in reply, “Have faith in God. Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.-Mark 11:22-24, usccb.org

The Spirit guides us to all truth. That truth is the Holy Spirit, is the Life given by the Spirit. Everything the Father has is given us. What the Father gives us is divine Life. And it is for Jesus’ glory that his disciples are empowered by the Spirit to bear what belongs to Jesus and the Father: divine Life. Our triune God holds back nothing from us. Our God is triune—three divine Persons in One God—and this God gives us everything we need to grow in the Life given us.-Living Liturgy™, Trinity Sunday 2013
Blest be God the Father, and the Only Begotten Son of God, and also the Holy Spirit, for he has shown us his merciful love.
God our Father, who by sending into the world the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification made known to the human race your wondrous mystery, grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith, we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.-Living Liturgy™, 2013
Hallelujah! Praise the name of the LORD!
Praise, you servants of the LORD, Who stand in the house of the LORD,
in the courts of the house of our God! Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good!
Sing to his name, for it brings joy!
For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his treasured possession.-Psalm 135:1-4, usccb.org
