Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of thy love.

V/.   Send forth thy Spirit, and they shall be created.

R/.   And thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray:      O God, who has taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Holy Spirit, they may be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

 The Sub Tuum

 We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities; but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

 A longer form of the Act of Contrition

 O my God, I am sorry and beg pardon for all my sins. I detest them above all things, because they deserve your dreadful punishments, because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ, and most of all because they offend your infinite goodness. I firmly resolve, by the help of your grace, never to offend you again, and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin. Amen.
