>It is often referred to as a traditional Catholic prayer to the Holy Spirit. My small accountability group, that meets each Saturday morning, always begins with this prayer before we begin reporting on our weekly discipleship. It echoes words from Psalm 104:30, is used regularly by the Emmaus community (no doubt originally adapted from Cursillo), and is part of the format for reunion groups for pilgrims who have been on Emmaus.

It is a prayer worth memorizing:

Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of Your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by that same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever enjoy Your consolations.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
