THE HOLY SPIRIT TRIDUUM
DAY 1 – PRAYER
O Holy Spirit! Lord of light!
From Thy clear celestial height,
Thy pure and beaming radiance give!
O Holy Spirit, bestow upon us Your seven holy gifts.
Enlighten our understanding that we may know You.
Give us wisdom that Your will may be clear to us and that we may accept it.
Grant us the gift of counsel that we may always perceive what is right.
Fortify us that we may always be capable of fulfilling Your Divine Will.
Inspire us with the spirit of learning that we may be able to penetrate more deeply into the truths that You have revealed.
Let our hearts be steeped in the spirit of childlikeness that we may bring You joy.
Let us have proper fear of God that we may never grieve You
or wander from the path of goodness.
Give us the fulness of Your gifts that we may glorify You.
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.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
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.
