Prayer To Be Kept From A Judgmental Spirit

“Through the Holy Spirit we are restored to paradise, led back to the Kingdom of heaven, and adopted as children, given confidence to call God “Father” and to share in Christ’s grace, called children of light and given a share in eternal glory.”
– St. Basil, De Spiritu Sancto

Pray to Holy Spirit – Consecration – Inspiration – Guidance – Find your Destiny thru Quiet Prayer

“I am going to reveal to you a secret of sanctity and happiness.

For five minutes every day quiet your imagination, close your eyes to everything visible and your ears to all external sounds and withdraw into the sanctuary of your baptized soul which is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

There, speak to the Holy Spirit and say:

“O Holy Spirit
Beloved of my soul
I adore you.
Enlighten Me
Guide Me,
strengthen Me and Console me.
Tell me what I ought to do
and command me to do it.
I promise to submit to everything
that you ask of me
and to accept all
that you allow to happen to me.
Just show me what is your will.”

If you do this, your life will be happy and serene. Even in the midst of troubles you will experience great consolation, for grace will be given to strengthen and help you to cope with every difficulty”

Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit

On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses, I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice, and the might of Your love. You are the Strength and Light of my soul. In You I live and move and am.

I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light, and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations.

I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You by Your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart I implore You, Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You.

Give me grace O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere “Speak Lord for Your servant heareth.” Amen.

Come, Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the earth.

Oh God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit instructed the hearts of the faithful, Grant, that by the same Spirit we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

St. Augustine’s Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen.

Veni Creator

Come, O Creator Spirit blest! And in our souls take up Thy rest; Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, To fill the hearts which Thou hast made. Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry, O highest gift of God most high! O font of life! O fire of love! And sweet anointing from above.

Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known, The finger of God’s hand we own; The promise of the Father, Thou! Who dost the tongue with power endow.
Kindle our senses from above, And make our hearts overflow with love; With patience firm and virtue high The weakness of our flesh supply.

Far from us drive the foe we dread, And grant us Thy true peace instead; So shall we not, with Thee for guide, Turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow The Father and the Son to know, And Thee, through endless times confessed, Of both, the eternal Spirit blest.

All glory while the ages run Be to the Father and the Son Who rose from death; the same to Thee, O Holy Ghost, eternally.
Amen.

Spreading the Word of God

Lord, you have enriched me
with the strength of your word.
You have opened my mind and heart
to see the wonders you have created.
You have blessed me with the gift of communication
to share your divine message.

Holy Spirit, help me to understand
the power of these gifts,
and teach me to use them wisely.
Bless all who use their talents
to communicate the Gospel.
Guide those who work
in the field of communications
to use their power for the good of your people.
This I ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord
Amen

Developing a Non-Judgmental Attitude

Prayer To Be Kept From A Judgmental Spirit

Recently, I wrote an article offering advice on how to stop being judgmental, and soon after it was posted, I received an interesting message from a reader, Paula, who expressed some of her concerns on the issue.

I don’t usually share my email conversations here, but this time I consider it important to do so, since I find that Paula’s experience is common to many people, and I thought it might be helpful to share my ideas with those of you who have similar concerns.

Paula’s message:

Hello Sofo,

I base my whole outlook on not being judgmental, but in the end the people I love still judge me.

In fact, I have made it an art to not judge people, so instead I just suffer because I realize that the people who judge me don’t really know me and don’t need to because they can think whatever they want.

I somehow feel extra betrayed though, because I convinced myself that fair play is not judging. I know they are the ones losing because their own misery lies in their own perspective of the world…but when everyone does it, and I’m the only one that doesn’t…I am alone.

Is it possible that today the non-judgmental people are the snobs? Because that is the way it feels. Does that make sense to you?

I love your blogs,

Paula

My response:

Paula,

First, one thing has to be made absolutely clear: being non-judgmental is not something that you do — it’s something that you are.

Therefore trying to be non-judgmental will not make you any less judgmental than you are.

In fact, the more you try to be non-judgmental, the more judgmental you’ll become, since your mind will be more focused on judgment. Try not to think of an elephant. What are you thinking of? I bet it’s an elephant!

Having a non-judgmental attitude is a result of the understanding that no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes in life. It’s the realization that everyone has been through difficult times and is possibly moving towards a brighter tomorrow.

It is the acceptance of the fact that every single person is a unique individual, and the comprehension that their individuality should be respected.

A non-judgmental attitude gives others space to be who they are, and supports them in their efforts to turn into the best version of themselves.

Of course, the reality is that most people are quick to judge each other, and no matter how less we judge others, it’s most ly that we’ll be judged by them… a lot. Does that mean that judging others would make life easier for you, just because you’re being judged by them? Not at all.

In fact, doing so could create a hell your life. In essence, to judge means to have certain expectations from people — to want them to be different than who they are — and the reality is that no one is going to fulfill your expectations.

Hence emotional anguish and social conflict is inevitably experienced by those who are focused on judging people.

You say that you feel betrayed and suffer because of others judging you. But what does that mean? That you judge yourself according to the opinions others have of you.

To be non-judgmental means first and foremost to stop judging your very self.

How could you stop judging others if you can’t stop judging yourself? It’s impossible, for the way we see others is a reflection of how we see ourselves.

Lastly, yes, you’re right in saying that people who claim to be non-judgmental are usually snobs – they are the ones who try to boost their egos by claiming that they are non-judgmental.

Instead of trying to boost their egos by judging others — most do — they do so by pretending to be saint-. But this also comes from a judgmental mentality.

If you are non-judgmental, what is the need of shouting to the world that you are so?

If you feel judgmental, there’s no point in trying to show that you’re not. Simply accept the fact that you are, and try to look into why that is so.

Why the constant need to judge others? What is the reason behind your judgmental attitude and how does it make your life any better? Once you start sincerely asking those questions, you’ll change how you look at yourself and others, and this will be a good first step to developing a non-judgmental attitude.

Love and light,

Sofo
