The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are permanent dispositions which make man docile in following the promptings of the Holy Spirit. They are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord.
COME HOLY SPIRIT
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And you shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise
and ever to rejoice in His consolation.
Through Christ our Lord.
Come, Holy Spirit. Replace the tension within us with a holy relaxation. Replace the turbulence within us with a sacred calm. Replace the anxiety within us with a quiet confidence. Replace the fear within us with a strong faith.
Replace the bitterness within us with the sweetness of your grace. Replace the darkness within us with your gentle light. Replace the coldness within us with your loving warmth. Replace the night within us with your day.
Replace the winter within us with your spring. Straighten our crookedness. Fill our emptiness. Dull the edges of our pride. Sharpen the edge of our humility. Light the fires of our love. Quench the flames of our lust. Let us see ourselves as You see us, that we may see You as You have promised, and be healed according to your Word.
