Consecration to the
O Holy Spirit,
receive the perfect and complete consecration of my whole being.
In all my
actions, grant me the grace of being my Light, my Guide, my Strength and the
Love of my heart.
I surrender myself to You, and I ask of You the grace to be
faithful to Your inspirations.
Holy Spirit, transform me through Mary and with Mary into a
true image of Christ Jesus,
for the glory of the Father, and the salvation of
the world. Amen.
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!
Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all store!
Come, within our bosoms shine!
You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of thine,
And our inmost being fill!
Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
In 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 to 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.
