The following prayers to the Holy Ghost are offered today in thanksgiving for graces received. I hope that you will find them useful. Now, more than ever, we need so much the graces of the Holy Ghost!
CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY GHOST
O Holy Spirit, divine Spirit of light and love, to Thee I consecrate my understanding, my heart, my will, my whole being for time and for eternity. May my understanding be ever submissive to Thy divine inspirations and to the teaching of the Holy Catholic Church of which Thou are the infallible guide; may my heart be ever inflamed with love of God and of neighbor; may my will be ever conformed to the divine will and may my whole life be a faithful imitation of the life and virtues of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to whom with the Father and with Thee, O Holy Spirit, be honor and glory forever. Amen.
CONSECRATION OF THE SOUL TO THE HOLY GHOST
(Prayer of St. Catherine of Siena written by her own hand and preserved at Siena)
“O Holy Spirit, come into my heart, by Thy power draw me to Thyself and grant me charity with fear. Keep me, O ineffable Love, from every evil thought, warm and kindle me with Thy sweetest love so that every suffering may seem light to me. My heavenly Father, help me this day in every act. Jesus Love! Jesus Love!”
I am sorry that I am unable to post more, but hope to return to work soon.There is a great inclination today to feel the need to obtain ever more information but if we spend a bit more time reading the beautiful works available to us and applying these thoughts in our prayers and meditations, we will be rewarded with clarity of mind and purpose and a peace and joy that cannot be taken from us. For now, we must all work towards our renewal of our Consecrations to Our Lady this coming First Saturday of February, which is the great Feast of her Purification. Have you considered inviting a friend? We are called to evangelization too, you know! ( I carp too much! Forgive me!) Thank you for reading – I pray for you always.
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
† Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
† St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
† St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
