Catholic Prayer: Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Description:

The prayer we pray all year round comes into its own on Pentecost. Once more, with feeling, we call upon the Holy Spirit to help us in all manner of ordinary or great endeavors (asking the boss for a raise, returning spoiled meat to a hostile grocer, writing a Petrarchan sonnet, weighing punishment for childish misdeeds, expressing thanks for a gift you did not want from a person you do not like, etc.):

Prayer:

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy Faithful;
and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created,
and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Prayer Source: Family Liturgical Customs No. 4: Easter by Ethel Marbach, Abbey Press Publishing Division, St. Meinrad, Indiana, 1964
