    ~ Come, Holy Spirit ~




    Grant me please, the Spirit of Wisdom that I may not be attached to the perishable things of the world,
    but aspire only after the things that are eternal.


    The Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Your divine truth.


    The Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining Heaven.


    The Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with courage, and overcome all obstacles to my sanctification.


    The Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and myself while growing perfect in the image of the Saints.


    The Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and enjoy showing Your goodness to all others.


    The Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God and avoid all that would displease Him.


    Mark me, dear Holy Spirit, with the sign of a true disciple and make me alive with Your Spirit in all things.



    Amen.
