Sixth Friday of Easter 2017 - Pray to the Holy Spirit from Saint Josemaría Escrivá

Pray to the Holy Spirit from Saint Josemaría Escrivá

Come, O Holy Spirit:
enlighten my understanding
to know your commands;
strengthen my heart
against the wiles of the enemy; inflame my will…
I have heard your voice,
and I don’t want to harden my heart to resisting,
by saying ‘later… tomorrow.’
Nunc coepi! Now!
Lest there be no tomorrow for me!
O, Spirit of truth and wisdom,
Spirit of understanding and counsel,
Spirit of joy and peace!
I want what you want,
I want it because you want it,
I want it as you want it,
I want it when you want it.





Tomorrow the 10 day devotion to the Holy Spirit begins; a tradition in the Catholic Church. It is a way of preparation for the Solemnity of the Pentecost. Above is a prayer from St. Josemaria's consider using it during these days.
