A prayer to share: The Pentecost Sequence


Translation of the Pentecost Sequence 
by Sister Irene Nowell, OSB

Come, Holy Spirit,

And send out from heaven

Your radiant light.

Come, father of the poor,

Come, giver of gifts,

Come, light of our hearts.

Best consoler,

Sweet guest of the soul,

Sweetness of cool refreshment.

Rest in labor,

Relief in heat,

Consolation in weeping.

O most blessed light,
Fill the center of the hearts

Of your faithful.

Without your divine power,

There is nothing in humans,

Nothing is innocent.

Wash what is soiled,

Water what is dry,

Heal what is wounded.

Bend what is rigid,

Warm what is chilled,

Guide what is astray.

Give to your faithful,

Who trust in you,

The seven sacred gifts.

Give the reward of virtue,

Give the goal of salvation,

Give eternal joy.

Amen. Alleluia.
