The image showing the fish in a bowl of water is inspired from an idea that St George Preca often referred to when speaking about our relationship with God. According to him we live in God like a fish in water. As the fish lives in water and cannot survive without it we are constantly surrounded with the presence and the love of God and we should be convinced that we cannot live without him.

Prayers by St George Preca

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit, who proceeds from God the Father and God the Son, come and remain in us. We need you in everything. We cannot do any good without you.

Come and remain in us in order to enlighten us against the deceits of the devil, of the world and of ourselves; to give us strength for holiness, for forbearance, and for self-denial in everything that pleases us.

Come and remain in us in order to comfort us in every sorrow. It's only through your help alone that we can live a holy life, shun sin, and eventually, at death, enter into everlasting life where we praise you, the Father and the Son.
