Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, Creator come
From Thy bright Heavenly throne
Come, take possession of our souls
And make them all Thy own.

Thou who are called the Paraclete
Best Gift of God above
The living spring, the living Fire
Sweet unction and true Love.

Those who art sevenfold in Grace
Finger of God’s right hand
His promise, teaching little ones
To speak and understand.

O guide our minds with Thy blest light
With Love our hearts inflame
And with Thy strength which n’er decays
Confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe
True peace unto us bring
And from all perils lead us safe
Beneath Thy sacred wing.

Through Thee may we the Father know
Through Thee the eternal Son
And Thee the Spirit of Them both
Thrice-blessed Three in One.

All glory to the Father be
With His co-equal Son
The same of Thee, great Paraclete
While endless ages run. Amen.

Day 27 of “The Gift, the Love Between the Father and Son, the Holy Spirit” from Venerable Conchita

30 Days to the Gift, the Love Between the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit. From the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption to the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary from the Inspired Works of Venerable Conchita.

Jesus promised his apostles that the Father would send them the Holy Spirit if they prayed. As Jesus was preparing for His departure, He spoke continuously to His apostles about the Holy Spirit. His heart was moved because He was sad that He would no longer be with them. He was already preparing them for the Consoler, who would sweeten the bitterness of His absence. The Holy Spirit would strengthen them for persecution, great suffering and imprisonment, making their hearts overflow with joy by His presence.

St. Luke refers to the Holy Spirit as the promise of the Father, because He brings about the realization of all the plans of our loving God for mankind. The Holy Spirit follows us everywhere, dwells in our very hearts and wants us to become holy. Why should we languish in our spiritual life if we carry within us the very life of God himself?

The Holy Spirit is the breath of Love which gives life to the Church. It is He who will give us the strength to be able to live the new law of Love. It is the Spirit who gives the Church the grace for the ministry of salvation. The Holy Spirit is the heart of the church, because He divinizes us and unites us into the one Body of Christ!

May the Holy Spirit to descend upon us! He is the unfailing light and the cause of all happiness. We must long to be his apostles and members of His family on earth. We must be His army of peace and charity, so that we will be witnesses of the Word made flesh! So, let us be light to the world . May He come quickly to reign and bring joy and happiness to all those who desire to be children of God.

Prayer of Conchita

Oh Holy Spirit, who overflows with mercy for men, I want to live always in Your presence so that I can I love You and make You loved by others. Come Holy Spirit and renew all things in Christ! Through your Divine fire, societies will be renewed. The cross of Christ will be raised up with His Heart in the center for the salvation of the world. Jesus, precious fruit of the Holy Spirit, You are the gift of Love from the Blessed Trinity to men. Send a new Pentecost upon the earth! May the world be consecrated to the Holy Spirit. We asked through Mary, the spouse of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Day 26 of “The Gift, the Love Between the Father and Son, the Holy Spirit” from Venerable Conchita

30 Days to the Gift, the Love Between the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit. From the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption to the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary from the Inspired Works of Venerable Conchita.

Our Lord exclaimed to His Apostles: “As the Father sent me, so I am sending you. After saying this, He breathed on them and said receive the Holy Spirit.” The Consoler did indeed come because the Holy Spirit is the fountain of holiness and happiness. Jesus did not want to leave us orphans, but who is able to remain with us? Only God could take the place of God. Only a divine light could make another divine light present. Only a love that is substantially divine could make the heart of Jesus present, that heart which so loved and continues to love mankind. The Holy Spirit is truly our all. To Him we owe our lives, the church and divine grace.

Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts, so that like the Apostles we may proclaim His glory and extend His reign as we shout with all our strength, love the Holy Spirit because “anyone who does not have theSpirit of Christ does not belong to Him! What heart would not be inflamed after having meditated upon the favors that we owe to the Holy Spirit?

Prayer of Conchita

“Beginning today, oh Holy Spirit, I wish to consecrate You my body with all my senses, my strength, my thoughts and my whole life. I wish to trace on my heart with letters of fire these words: oh Holy Spirit come! I desire to love the Father with my whole heart, to love the Son with all my soul, and to love you Holy Spirit. Splendor of the Father and the Son, with all my strength and with every beat of my heart, I love you. Oh Mary, we go to the Holy Spirit through you. You are the sweetest and surest means by which He comes to Reign in our hearts. Plead with Him today that He may come quickly to unite our wills, to bring us peace and to triumph over the enmity that exists among those of us who are brothers of Jesus and your children as well.” Amen.

Day 25 of “The Gift, the Love Between the Father and Son, the Holy Spirit” from Venerable Conchita

30 Days to the Gift, the Love Between the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit. From the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption to the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary from the Inspired Works of Venerable Conchita.

Jesus compared the Holy Spirit with a wellspring of living water that would flow from the hearts of His apostles after they had received the Holy Spirit. This is indeed what happened. Immediately afterwords, they began to conquer souls and Saint Peter converted 5,000 people on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit, heavenly dew, is also the fountain of living water, which never runs out for all who desire to receive holiness, joy, peace and love. If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Him and drink. We thirst for truth, for sincerity, for virtues, for divine grace and light. We walk through the desert of this world with arid souls, dry hearts, longing to satisfy our thirst with torrential rivers of wisdom and the holiness of God in order to give it to others. Our souls were created to thirst for God as He thirsts for us.

Scripture tells us: “A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, neither can he know them, but we have the mind of Christ.” But how can this be achieved in our souls? Only with the dew from heaven that is the living water that flows on to everlasting life, with the everlasting wellspring that never dries up, with the sweet cool breeze that is the Holy Spirit. Only He can satisfy the thirst that devours us when our heart is inflamed.

How great the Holy Spirit is! Through His action, souls who are in a state of grace continue to progress and become His instruments for the good of others. Let us reflect upon the advances that we would make and the plentitude of virtues we would possess if we really allowed Him, who is Love itself, to guide us. What would be our zeal, our charity and how many conquests would we make for heaven, if we corresponded to His Divine, ardent inspirations. What would be our generosity and patience, and how many virtues would overflow our hearts, inundated by the wellspring of all heavenly goods! Let us entrust ourselves then to the Holy Spirit, the generous wellspring of all grace!

Prayer of Conchita

“With all the generosity of which I am capable, I consecrate myself to you Holy Spirit! Although I cannot fully understand You, I can love You and make You more loved. That which is infinite cannot be measured, and You with the Father and the Son, are the perfection of beauty, wisdom and infinite goodness. But more than this, You are Love itself, and that is why in You, I contemplate with joy: Your power, Your justice, Your mercy and all the attributes of Your Love. Could anyone be more worthy of Love than Love itself?”

Day 24 of “The Gift, the Love Between the Father and Son, the Holy Spirit” from Venerable Conchita

30 Days to the Gift, the Love Between the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit. From the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption to the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary from the Inspired Works of Venerable Conchita.

The Holy Spirit is the Consoler. He always comes to the aid of our weakness and alleviates our sorrow. He also makes our self-sacrifice a loving experience. He consoles us by giving us peace during a time of suffering, and by extending a hand of Divine friendship that will make us happy. But exactly who are they who receive the consolation of the Holy Spirit? It is for those who weep and for the humble. He never descends to those who do not believe He is necessary.

How many tears flood this earth? The weeping of the person on his sickbed, the prisoner in chains, the orphan in his abandonment, the poor person in need, and the anguish of the one who has been maligned unfairly. The repentant sinner weeps, as do those who suffer abandonment and desolation. The victim souls weep for the Church and for the nations which offend God. They weep tears of blood. All of us are weeping in this valley of tears!

The sublime Consoler is the only one capable of easing and sweetening every suffering. The Holy Spirit is the one who inspired Jesus to say these words at which the world smiles: “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.” The Consoler makes our sacrifices in life easier, and He pours out His exquisite sweetness on the troubled hearts of those who invoke Him! Oh Consoler of all hearts, have mercy on us.

The Spirit of Truth also teaches us how to speak with God. The infinite Love of the Holy Spirit has the science of language. For this reason, He allowed himself to be seen in tongues of fire over the Apostles, which symbolize His ardent Love. The Holy Spirit is able to penetrate all things, even the most intimate secrets of God and He communicates them to souls. He speaks to us, and in prayer He enables us to hear the voice of the Spirit of Truth. The words of the Holy Spirit are intimate and persuasive, because He wants us to live the truth and to love in “spirit and in truth.” The Divine Spirit is the one who suggests all Truth. The Holy Spirit is the friend of simplicity and unity.

The Holy Spirit is the sacred Fire which purifies and enkindles us. As we read in Scripture, “The Love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” This Fire of Love, which purifies, also sheds light, because love is light. It is a light that illuminates and transforms. Oh splendor of glory, uncreated Love, please penetrate, enlighten and set us on fire to the uttermost depths of our hearts!

Prayer of Conchita

“Oh Holy Spirit, the ineffable bond who unites the Father and the Son, I wish to love you. This vile worm of the earth desires to leave behind this earth and fly towards you to become lost in the Flame of Your Love. Give me purity, a willingness to sacrifice myself, and an ever increasing love for You that I may be consumed in unity with the Holy Trinity. I ask this Holy Spirit through the intercession of Mary, and this You will not be able to deny. Amen.”
