Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit – Day 3

Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit - Day 3

Today we pray the ancient invocation Veni Sancte Spiritus! Come Holy Spirit! Let this prayer rest in your breath and being in these days. Allow it to rise mantra like to your lips from your heart with each breath in these days….
.
Come, Holy Spirit, from heaven shine forth with your glorious light.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
Come, Father of the poor, come, generous Spirit, come,
light of our hearts.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
Come from the four winds, O Spirit, come breath of God;
disperse the shadows over us, renew and
strengthen your people.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
Most kindly warming light! Enter the inmost depths of our hearts,
for we are faithful to you.
Without your presence we have nothing worthy, nothing pure.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
You are only comforter, Peace of the soul.
In the heat you shade us; in our labour you refresh us,
and in trouble you are our strength.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
On all who put their trust in you and receive you in faith,
shower all your gifts.
Grant that they may grow in you and persevere to the end.
Give them lasting joy!
Veni Sancte Spiritus
.
We pray:
.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth. .
Let us pray;
.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Our Lady, Immaculate Spouse of the Holy Spirit, pray for us.
