Prayer for Pentecost

“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind…”

Acts of the Apostles 2:1-2

The wind is blowing today.
A slight breeze,
a breathe of fresh air.
The Holy Spirit comes anew
on this Solemnity of Pentecost.

Can you feel it?

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are free for the asking for all who are properly disposed to receive them.

Veni Sancte Spiritus!
Come Holy Spirit!

___

Send down your gifts abundantly and overflowing.

Your gifts of Wisdom and Understanding.

Your gifts of Fortitude and Fear of the Lord.

Your gifts of Piety, Counsel and Knowledge.

Teach us to use these gifts prudently, that good fruit may be apparent in our lives – through our thoughts, words and deeds – that others may learn of you through us. Come, Spirit of Grace, Come!
