Ordinary Time



Priest: Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.

Congregation: And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Priest: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.

Congregation: And you will renew the face of the earth.

Priest and Congregation:

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 enjoy his consolations.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
