COME HOLY SPIRIT

Come, Holy Spirit, Creator, come from your bright Heavenly throne; come take possession of our souls, and make them all your own.

You who are called the Paraclete, Best gift of God above; The living spring, the living fire, Sweet unction and true love.

You who are sevenfold in Your grace, Finger of God's right hand; His promise, teaching little ones, to speak and understand.

O guide our minds Your blessed light, with love our hearts inflame; and with Your strength which never decays, confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe, True peace unto us bring; and through all perils bring us safe, beneath Your sacred wing. Through You may we know the Father, Through You the eternal Son, and You the Spirit of them both; Thrice-blessed Three in one.

All glory to the Father be, with His co-equal Son; the same to You, great Paraclete, while endless ages run. Amen.

 

THE ANGELUS

 

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary... V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord. R. Be it done unto me according to Your Word. Hail Mary... V. And the Word became flesh. R. And dwelt among us. Hail Mary... V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. R. That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:

Father, fill our hearts with Your Grace. As You revealed to us by an Angel the coming of Your Son as man, lead us through His suffering and death to the Glory of His resurrection, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.


REGINA CAELI (Easter season)

V. Queen of Heaven, rejoice, Alleluia. R. The Son whom You merited to bear, Alleluia. V. Has risen as He said, Alleluia. R. Pray for us before God, Alleluia. V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia. For the Lord has truly risen Alleluia.

Let us pray: God Our Father, You gave joy to the world by the resurrection of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Through His Mother, the Virgin Mary, bring us to the happiness of eternal life. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

 

The Offering of the Incarnate Word

Heavenly Father, through the hands of Mary, we offer You Jesus, the Incarnate Word, the Victim in whom You are well pleased. Moved by the love of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, we offer ourselves completely with Him as living hosts. May we be a living sacrifice out of love for You, in all the events of our lives, obtaining graces for the world, the Church and especially Your priests.

 

Consecration to the Holy Spirit.

O Holy Spirit, receive the perfect and complete consecration of my whole being. In all my actions, grant me the grace of being my Light, my Guide, my Strength and the Love of my heart. I surrender myself to You, and I ask of You the grace to be faithful to Your inspirations. Holy Spirit, tranform me through Mary and with Mary into a true image of Christ Jesus, for the glory of the Father, and the salvation of the world. Amen.
