Catholic Prayer: Prayer for the Octave of Pentecost
A family prayer for eight days after the Feast of Pentecost, or the Octave of Pentecost. Since Vatican II, the Church officially celebrates only two octaves, the Easter Octave and the Christmas Octave. But these prayers can still be prayed.
|Family:||Alleluia, the Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world. Come, let us adore Him, Alleluia.|
|Father:||Let us pray. O God, on this day Thou didst teach the hearts of Thy faithful people by the light of Thy Holy Spirit; grant us by the same Spirit a right judgment in all things and ever to rejoice in His consolations. Through Christ our Lord.|
|Father:||Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created; and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth, Alleluia Alleluia.|
|Family:||The Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world, Alleluia.|
|Father:||And He who embraces all things knows every spoken word, Alleluia.|
|Family:||The charity of God is poured forth in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who has been given to us, Alleluia.|
