“He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
We’re still in the glow of the Resurrection. Indeed, in the mind of the Church, the Easter Season is longer than the Lenten Season. Easter lasts
for 50 days while Lent only lasts for 40 days. The Church certainly believes
During these 50 days we are called to enter into a special prayer. We are called to prayer for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives in a very real and personal way. To make this a reality, we would like to suggest two things:
First, pray the novena to the Holy Spirit from Ascension Thursday
Second, pray a prayer to the Holy Spirit every day. The two most common
of the Veni Creator Spiritus. The other is a very short prayer that you can actually say easily throughout the day:
Come Holy Spirit and fill the heart of thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your spirit and they shall be created and you will renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray that through us God will help to renew the earth. Thank you
and my God bless you.
Prayer for Easter
Come Holy Spirit and fill the heart of thy faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your spirit and they shall be created
and you will renew the face of the earth.
