9 days Novena Prayers to the Holy Spirit:
Veni, Creator Spiritus
Come, O Creator Spirit, visit our minds,
Fill with your love the hearts you have created,
O wonderful consoler,
Gift of the Most High Father, Living water! Fire! Love!
Holy Chrism of the soul!
Finger of the Hand of God,
Promised by the Saviour,
Make the Word be born in us.
Light of the intellect, Living flame in our hearts,
Heal our wounds with the ointment of your love.
Defend us from the enemy,
Bring peace as your gift.
All powerful Guide, may you save us from all evil.
May you save us from all evil.
Light of eternal wisdom,
Reveal to us the great mystery of God the Father and the Son,
United in one single love.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus!
Come, Holy Spirit, send us a ray of your light.
Come, you father of the poor.
Come, you light of the heart.
Come, you giver of all gifts.
Come, you who are the greatest of all helpers.
You are the most beloved guest of the soul.
The most precious comforter.
In the midst of our weariness, you bring relief.
In the midst of our sufferings, you bring consolation.
O immortal light, come into our hearts.
For without your grace there is nothing good in us.
Purify all that is unclean in us.
Water everything that is dry.
Heal all our wounds.
Bend what is rigid.
Warm what is cold.
Bring order to all that is devious in us.
Give to your faithful ones your holy gifts.
Give strength and love.
Grant us a holy death.
And grant us joy that will never end. Amen.
