  • PRAYER FOR THE SEVENFOLD GIFT

O Holy Spirit, eternal Love of the Father and the Son, our God and sanctifier, we adore and thank you for your presence in this world, our Church and in us. We ask forgiveness of all the times that we have saddened You and our neighbours. We ask pardon for all the times that we have resisted your action in us and the other. Descend upon us once more as in the days of Pentecost.

– Descend, fountain of grace, on our Bishops and Priests;
– Descend, source of holiness, upon the religious who are consecrated to you;
– Descend, seal of new life, on all the faithful;
– Descend, balm of mercy, on poor sinners;
– Descend, light of truth, on all mankind;
– Descend through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, from the heart of the Trinity and come to us.

Come, Spirit of Wisdom, free us from the things of the earth and give us the desire and the taste of the things of heaven.

Come, Spirit of Understanding, illuminate our minds with the light of eternal truth and fill it with holy thoughts.
Come, Spirit of Counsel, make us docile to your inspirations and guide us on the road of salvation.

Come, Spirit of Fortitude, give us the energy and constancy in doing what is right and good and the strength to fight against evil.

Come, Spirit of Knowledge, reveal the secrets of God to us and open our minds to the contemplation of heaven.

Come, Spirit of Piety, teach us to pray. Invade and purify our senses and affections ordering all towards You.

Come, Spirit of the Just Fear of the Lord, inspire us to have an horror of sin and the desire to seek only to please God alone.
