Come, Holy Spirit: Ten-Day Devotion in Preparation for Pentecost | St. Josemaría Institute | MAY 7, 2020
Prayer to the Holy Spirit composed by St. Josemaría Escrivá in 1934
Come, O Holy Spirit:
enlighten my understanding
to know your commands;
strengthen my heart
against the wiles of the enemy; inflame my will…
I have heard your voice,
and I don’t want to harden my heart to resisting,
by saying ‘later… tomorrow.’
Nunc coepi! Now!
Lest there be no tomorrow for me!
O, Spirit of truth and wisdom,
Spirit of understanding and counsel,
Spirit of joy and peace!
I want what you want,
I want it because you want it,
I want it as you want it,
I want it when you want it.
Volo quidquid vis, volo quia vis, volo quomodo vis, volo quamdiu vis.
