Invocation of the the Holy Spirit

V.  Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
R.  And kindle in them the fire of your love.

V.  Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R.  And you will renew the face of the earth. 

O God, who instructs the hearts of the faithful with the light of your Holy Spirit, make us responsive to his inspirations so that we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolations.  Through Christ our Lord.   Amen.

Jesus Living in Mary

O Jesus living in Mary, 
come and live in Thy servants. 
In the spirit of Thy holiness, 
in the fullness of Thy might, 
in the truth of Thy virtues, 
in the perfection of Thy ways, 
in the communion of Thy mysteries. 
Subdue every hostile power in Thy spirit, 
for the glory of the Father.  Amen.

Ave Maris Stella

Hail, bright star of ocean,
God's own Mother blest,
Ever sinless Virgin,
Gate of heavenly rest.

Taking that sweet Ave
Which from Gabriel came,
Peace confirm within us,
Changing Eva's name.

Break the captives' fetters,
Light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling,
Every bliss implore.

Show thyself a Mother;
May the Word Divine,
Born for us thy Infant,
Hear our prayers through thine.

Virgin all excelling,
Mildest of the mild,
Freed from guilt, preserve us,
Pure and undefiled.

Keep our life all spotless,
Make our way secure,
Till we find in Jesus,
Joy for evermore.

Through the highest heaven
To the immortal Three,
Father, Son and Spirit,
One same glory be.  Amen.
