Let us turn to Lord to ask him to give us an anointing of his Holy Spirit so that we can understand. Oh God our Father, all things are in your hands and we place our lives in your hands. Instruct us, we ask you by sending your Holy Spirit to anoint our minds so that we can understand the mystery of the death and resurrection of your beloved and Divine Son. Help us to penetrate this mystery by living it in our lives and being in union with Jesus in his suffering, death and resurrection. We ask you this through our same Christ, our Lord. We ask you Mary, the mother of God, to be with us and to guide our thoughts and to surround all that we do so that it will bring us more deeply into the will of the Father.
This indicates the spread of the church in the lifetime of the Apostles. Many present will witness this. He growth and spread of the church
