Come, O Divine Spirit, fill my heart with Thy heavenly fruits, Thy charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, faith, mildness, and temperance, that I may never weary in the service of God, but by continued faithful submission to Thy inspiration, may merit to be united eternally with Thee in the love of the Father and the Son. Amen.
Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and seven Glory Be’s
Consecration to the Holy Ghost
On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses,
I offer myself soul and body to Thee, Eternal Spirit of God.
I adore the brightness of Thy purity,
the unerring keenness of Thy justice,
and the might of Thy love.
Thou art the Strength and Light of my soul.
In Thee I live and move and have my being.
I desire never to grieve Thee by unfaithfulness
and I pray with all my heart
to be kept from the smallest sin against Thee.
Mercifully guard my every thought, word, deed and hope.
Grant that I may always watch for Thy light,
listen to Thy voice,
and follow Thy gracious inspirations.
I cling to Thee and give myself to Thee
and ask Thee, by Thy compassion,
to watch over me in my weakness.
Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus
and looking at His Five Wounds,
trusting in His Precious Blood,
adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart,
I implore Thee, Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity,
to keep me in Thy grace that I may never sin against Thee.
Give me grace, O Holy Spirit,
Spirit of the Father and the Son,
to say to Thee always and everywhere,
“Speak, Lord, for Thy servant heareth.” Amen.Prayer to the Holy Ghost for His GiftsO Lord Jesus ChristWho, before ascending into heaven,did promise to send the Holy Spiritto finish Thy workin the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples,deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me,that He may perfect in my soulthe work of Thy grace and Thy love.Grant me the Spirit of Wisdomthat I may despise the perishable things of this worldand aspire only after the things that are eternal,the Spirit of Understandingto enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth,the Spirit of Counselthat I may ever choose the surest wayof pleasing God and gaining heaven,the Spirit of Fortitudethat I may bear my cross with Theeand that I may overcome with courageall the obstacles that oppose my salvation,the Spirit of Knowledgethat I may know God and know myselfand grow perfect in the science of the Saints,the Spirit of Pietythat I may find the service of God sweet and amiable,and the Spirit of Fearthat I may be filled with a loving reverencetowards God and may dread in any way to displease Him.Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples,and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit.
