Prayer to the Holy Spirit …

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Come Holy Spirit, come fill my heart with your heavenly love.

 Enlighten my mind so that I may know the Truth, live the Truth

and be willing to die for the Truth.


Come Holy Spirit, come in the dark and lonely moments of my life,

come to console me and comfort me. You who are the Sweet

Guest of the soul, make me aware of your constant and living

 presence, so that I recognize that I am never alone because

 you are with me as a Faithful Friend.


Come Holy Spirit, come, you who are the Interior Master,

 teach me how to pray. I do not know how to pray well.

I implore you to intercede for me with ineffable groans so

 that I can cry out: “Abba, Father!”


Come Holy Spirit, come in moments of doubt and confusion,

 be my light and counselor. Help me to make decisions,

not according to my will but according to your holy will.


Come Holy Spirit, come in moments of weakness, give me

strength. You who are the courage and strength of the martyrs,

 obtain for me interior strength to fight against sin, my fallen

human nature, and anything that is not pleasing to you.


Come Holy Spirit, come, grant me a filial love for you and a

sincere love for my neighbour, especially for those I live with

and meet every day. Set my heart on fire with love.


Come Holy Spirit, come, sanctify me with your presence.

 You who are the sanctifier, attain for me an ardent yearning

 for holiness of life. “Be holy as your heavenly Father is holy.”

May I attain holiness of life so as to attain the promise of eternal life.


Come Holy Spirit, come, produce in me a reverential fear that

motivates me to avoid all that is displeasing to you, and to avoid

any persons, places, things, or circumstances that could

damage my friendship with you Amen.”


“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle

 within us the fire of your divine love.”


V: “Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created,”

R: “And you shall renew the face of the earth.”


Let us pray: “O God, who did instruct the hearts of your faithful

by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us that we might be truly

 wise and always rejoice in His consolation, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.”

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
