Litany to the Holy Spirit

Sister Mary Ann Lou from Taiwan has sent us this prayer for the Holy Father. Say it daily until Pentecost:

From all error of faith, Save us, Holy Spirit!

From all sins,

From the spirit of pride,

From the spirit of uncleanness,

From the Spirit of hatefulness,

From the spirit of falsehood and pretense,

From the neglect of your inspirations,

From the resisting of recognized truth,

From the pride of taking your mercy for granted,

From the fear of losing divine mercy,

From obstinancy and the lack of repentance,

From sudden and unhappy death,

From eternal damnation,

We poor sinners, We beseech you, hear us!

We ask you to support the Holy Father and all Bishops, As they govern the Church;

We ask you to send holy priests to the Church;

We ask you to sanctify all holy orders and members of the Church;

We ask you to bless the work of all Catholic catechists and teachers,

We ask you to powerfully protect the Catholic missions,

We ask you to guide back to Christ’s fold, all who have wandered far from him;

We ask you to keep away sadness and doubt;

We ask you to preserve the unity of the Church

We ask you to direct all our thoughts and desires towards heaven;

We ask you to keep us all in your Love;

We ask you to receive us all into everlasting happiness;

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, Spare us, O, Lord!

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, Hear us, O, Lord!

Lamb of God, you take away, the sins of the world, have mercy on us!

Send us your Spirit, and we will be renewed,

and you will renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray, Holy Spirit of God, whom the Lord had promised to his Church and whom he graciously sent to us on the day of Pentecost: be the constant welcome Guest of our hearts! Protect and increase in us your graces; kindle the fire of the hidden divine virtues in our hearts!

Adorn us, your temples, with your sevenfold gifts; allow the spirit of your Love to radiate to our brothers and sisters. Help us to build the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ through prayer, through the witness of our lives and our apostolate.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Father, forever and ever Amen
