In case anyone of you does not know how to celebrate the HOLY SPIRIT and the Birthday of our Mother—the Catholic Church, here again is the SEQUENCE to the HOLY SPIRIT which we pray at Mass on PENTECOST SUNDAY after the Second Reading:
Veni, Sancte Spiritus
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!
Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
Come, within our bosoms shine.
You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
And our inmost being fill!
Where you are not, we have naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sevenfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end. Amen.
And the all-powerful prayer: “VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS!” should be prayed at all time.
Let us all give the HOLY SPIRIT due honor.
I have been praying the “VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS” all night and continuing praying it throughout this day and the rest of my life.
Here it is again:
