Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.

V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.

R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise
and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord,


know that you are not alone.

When we turn to God with dependant faith, God does not miss the opportunity to work powerfully in us. 

I ask you to pray with me the ancient Prayer to the Holy Spirit which has traditionally been prayed by any person or community knowing their need for the power of God in their life. Please pick up one of the prayer cards we have made available at all parishes, learn it by heart. Pray it to begin and end your day, together at various gatherings and whenever you need to know that you are not alone.
