To the Holy Spirit

"The traditional form of petition to the Holy Spirit is to invoke the Father through Christ our Lord to give us the Consoler Spirit. Jesus insists on this petition to be made in his name at the very moment when he promised the gift of the Spirit of Truth. But the simplest and most direct prayer is also traditional, ‘Come, Holy Spirit,' and every liturgical tradition has developed it in antiphons and hymns." 1

Ten-day Devotion to the Holy Spirit

The day before you begin the Ten-Day Devotion, which is the eve of the glorious Ascension of our divine Redeemer, you must prepare yourself by making a firm resolution to live an interior life and, once you have begun, never again abandon it. Do not ask yourself how much this is going to cost you; look at only how much it is worth. This has always been the case:  What is worth a lot costs a lot. And what is the effort we put into knowing ourselves, when we compare it with the great benefits that we derive from it?2
