Holy Spirit, powerful Consoler, sacred Bond of the Father and the Son, Hope
of the afflicted, descend into my heart and establish in it your loving dominion. Enkindle in my tepid soul
the fire of your Love so that I may be wholly subject to you. We believe that when you dwell in us, yolu also prepare a dwelling for the Father and the Son. Deign, therefore, to come to me, Consoler of abandoned souls, and Protector of the needy. Help the afflicted, strengthen the weak, and support the wavering. Come and purify me. Let no evil
desire take possession of me. You love the humble and resist the proud. Come to me, glory
of the living, and hope
of the dying. Lead me by your grace
that I may always be pleasing to you. Amen.
Saint Augustine of Hippo
May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
