Veni Sancte Spiritus (Come Holy Spirit)

the fire of the Holy SpiritHere is a powerful, beautiful, surrendered, trusting prayer that can be prayed TO the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God is the third member/Person of the Trinity.

The Spirit has personality.

The Spirit has a specific work and ministry to be done.

This prayer understands the work of the Spirit and is a prayer of invitation and invocation, longing for the Spirit to do that work in your life.

I recommend a slow, prayerful reflection the first time through. Almost a lectio divina reading and moving through this prayer. You may want to pray it for several days. Later, pull it out on a weekly basis and use it as a model or stepping stone to communicte with and commune with the Spirit of God.

I have provided it as a PDF for you to print out and use often.
