“Not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live forever.” John 6: 51-58
Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love
send forth your Spirit
and they shall be created
and you shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever to enjoy His consolations
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen

“The Word of God became flesh,
and dwelt among us;
and we saw his glory.” John 1:14
“Souls perish in spite of my bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation: that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice is near.” Notebook II, St. Faustina
“Make my poor life, in intimate union with the Word Incarnate, an unceasing sacrifice of glory to the Blessed Trinity.” Sister Elizabeth of the Trinity, Burgos, 1985
Come Holy Spirit, come!
…Shine within these hearts of yours…
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray
On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sevenfold gift descend;
Give them virtue’s sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia.
“Let us pray.
we share in the light of your glory
through your Son, the light of the world.
Make this new fire holy, and inflame us with new hope.
Purify our minds by this Easter celebration
and bring us one day to the feast of eternal light.
We ask this through Christ the Lord.”
