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 2 – PRAYER
I have my own expectations about what I should and should not do.
I now surrender to You my ideas, my limitations, my preferences, and my goals. Fill me, Holy Spirit, with all Your supernatural gifts!
Empower me to accept and grow in the supernatural life as much as the early disciples did. I want to be useful to You.
I want to go where You lead me. Holy Spirit, send me forth gifted and empowered to make a difference spreading the Good News of God’s forgiving love.
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.
