I will place My Spirit within you and make you walk according to My laws; and My judgments you shall keep and observe, says the Lord.
The Lord anointed my eyes: I went, I washed, I saw and I believed in God.
Confirm in us the mysteries of the faith, Lord, so that we would confess that Jesus, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is true God and true man.
