Come Holy Spirit and fill the hearts of the faithful, and kindle in them the fire of divine love. Send forth Your Spirit and renew the face of the earth.
DAY 3 – PRAYER
Come and fill me, O Divine Spirit. Fill my heart with Your heavenly fruits:
Your love for others, Your joy, Your peace, Your kindness, Your generosity, Your faithfulness, Your gentleness, and Your temperance for self-control, that I may never weary in the service of God.
Keep me close to You so that my life produces Your fruits in ever-increasing abundance.
Help me to continually and faithfully submit to Your divine inspiration so that I will be united eternally with You in the love of the Father and the Son.
Look with compassion upon us, O Holy Spirit, and grant us the favor we seek in this Triduum…
State your request here…
if it be in accordance with Your Holy Will.
This is the mystery of Pentecost:
The Holy Spirit illuminates the human spirit and, by revealing Christ Crucified and Risen, indicates the way to become more like him, that is, to be ‘the image and instrument of the love which flows from Christ.’” (Pope Benedict XVI, June 4, 2006)
To console them, Jesus explains the meaning of his departure: he will go, but he will return; meanwhile, he will not abandon them, will not leave them orphans.
He will send the Consoler, the Spirit of the Father, and the Spirit will enable them to understand that Christ’s work is a work of love: love of the One who gave himself, love of the Father who has given him.
