Illumination from Hildegard's Scivias (1151) showing her receiving a vision and dictating to teacher Volmar.

Creating God, you bestowed upon your daughter Hildegard many spiritual gifts. In company with her we pray: Expand our hearts, O God. 

Help us to support and encourage young people in their faith journey.  

     Expand our hearts, O God.  

Renew our appreciation of the Church’s rich prayer tradition, particularly the psalms.  

     Expand our hearts, O God. 

Enliven your Church by the gifts of those called to the single vocation.  

     Expand our hearts, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God put a song of praise on our lips and a prayer of thanksgiving in our hearts, today and always. Amen.
