O Lord Jesus
before ascending into heaven,
didst promise to send the Holy Ghost
to finish Thy work in the souls
of Thy Apostles
deign to grant the same Holy Spirit
that He may perfect in my soul
the work of Thy grace
and Thy love.
Grant me the Spirit
that I may despise the perishable things of this world
and aspire only after the things that are eternal,
of Understanding to enlighten my mind
with the light of Thy divine truth,
that I may ever choose the surest way
of pleasing God
and gaining Heaven,
that I may bear my cross with Thee,
and that I may overcome with courage
all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,
that I may know God
and know myself
and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,
that I may find the service of God
sweet and amiable,
that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God,
and may dread in any way to displease Him.
Mark me, dear Lord,
with the sign of Thy true disciples
and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit.
