Come Holy Spirit, Creator Blest (Veni, Creator Spiritus)
and in our souls take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heavenly aid
to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
O comforter, to Thee we cry,
O heavenly gift of God Most High,
O fount of life and fire of love,
and sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known;
Thou, finger of God’s hand we own;
Thou, promise of the Father, Thou
Who dost the tongue with power imbue.
Kindle our sense from above,
and make our hearts o’erflow with love;
with patience firm and virtue high
the weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
and grant us Thy peace instead;
so shall we not, with Thee for guide,
turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
the Father and the Son to know;
and Thee, through endless times confessed,
of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death, be glory given,
with Thou, O Holy Comforter,
henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.
PRAYER TO our MOTHER MARY (by Brothers Jaccard)
Mary, Immaculate Conception, our Mother, Spouse of the Holy Spirit
Through whom the Father gave His Son to the World,
Living Gate of Heaven through which grace and glory come into our Flesh,
Holy place where Earth and Heaven meet
Here’s our desire to be in keeping with our vocation as God’s children.
Teach us to hear the voices of Jesus and of the Father who speak to us in the depths of our souls and to live our lives in accordance with the trend and the inspiration of their divine influence.
May our whole being receive from you its accomplished form.
In your hands, may we become obedient actors with whom you will be able to fulfil your Mission of Immaculate, help you dispel the domination of Satan’s evil and make of all men a people of Saints animated by the Holy Spirit, the boundless Body of your Son, ô loving Mother of the Church, Mother of the Shepherds and of the Faithful, standing by the human multitude in the Glory of your Assumption. We abandon and dedicate ourselves to you.
Be our inspiring force and the Abode we dwell in.
Everything through you, everything with you, everything in you, everything for you,
O Mary quite dedicated to the Lord, may God our Father’s Reign and eternal tenderness
be therefore established for ever on humanity and the whole creation. Amen !
