PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
(said in unison by all)
Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart with Your holy gifts.
Let my weakness be penetrated with Your strength this very day that I may fulfill all the duties of my state conscientiously, that I may do what is right and just.
Let my charity be such as to offend no one, and hurt no one’s feelings; so generous as to pardon sincerely any wrong done to me.
Assist me, O Holy Spirit, in all my trials of life, enlighten me in my ignorance, advise me in my doubts, strengthen me in my weakness, help me in all my needs, protect me in temptations and console me in afflictions.
Graciously hear me, O Holy Spirit, and pour Your light into my heart, my soul, and my mind.
Assist me to live a holy life and to grow in goodness and grace. Amen.
People: Our Father……

Almighty God, graciously infuse into our hearts the gift of Your Spirit. Protect us from all adversity and grant us a share in building up Your kingdom both on earth and in heaven. Amen.
Priest: Grant success to the work of our hands.
People: Grant success to the work of our hands.
