Come Holy Spirit


Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful

and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.

And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.


Let us pray.

O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit,

grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise,

and ever to rejoice in His consolation.

Through Christ, our Lord.



Veni Sancte Spiritus,

reple tuorum corda fidelium:

et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.

Emitte Spiritum tuum, et creabuntur.

Et renovabis faciem terrae.


Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti,

da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere,

et de eius semper consolatione gaudere.

Per Christum, Dominum nostrum.



Come, Holy Spirit,

send forth the heavenly radiance of your light.

Come, father of the poor, come, giver of gifts, come, light of the heart.

Greatest comforter, sweet guest of the soul, sweet consolation.

In labour, rest, in heat, temperance, in tears, solace.

O most blessed light, fill the inmost heart of your faithful.

Without your spirit, there is nothing in man, nothing that is not harmful.

Cleanse that which is unclean, water that which is dry, heal that which is wounded.

Bend that which is inflexible, fire that which is chilled, correct what goes astray.

Give to your faithful, those who trust in you, the sevenfold gifts.

Grant the reward of virtue, grant the deliverance of salvation, grant eternal joy.
