Ezekiel 36: 23, 24, 25, 26

Cum sanctificátus fúero in vobis, congregábo vos de univérsis terris: et effúndam super vos aquam mundam, et mundabímini ab ómnibus inquinaméntis vestris: et dabo vobis spíritum novum, allelúia, alleluia. Ps 33:2. Benedícam Dóminum in omni témpore: semper laus eius in ore meo. Glória Patri.


 When I prove My holiness through you, I will gather you from all the foreign lands; and I will sprinkle clean water upon you to cleanse you from all your impurities; and I will give you a new spirit, alleluia, alleluia. Ps. I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall be ever in my mouth. Glory be to the Father.


Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God: that the splendour of Thy brightness may shine forth among us; and that the light of Thy light may, by the illumination of the Holy Spirit, strengthen the hearts of them who through Thy grace are born again. Through our Lord.


Grant, O Lord, we beseech thee, that we thy ‘servants may enjoy constant health of body and mind; and by the glorious intercession of Blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, be delivered from all present sorrow, and come to that joy which is eternal.


Mercifully hear, we beseech thee, O Lord, the prayers of thy Church: that, all oppositions and errors being removed, she may serve thee with a secure liberty. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

St. Paul preaching at Athens - Raphael


Acts 19

In those days: It came to pass, while Apollo was at Corinth, that Paul having passed through the upper coasts, came to Ephesus, and found certain disciples. And he said to them: Have you received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? But they said to him: We have not so much as heard whether there be a Holy Ghost. And he said: In what then were you baptized? Who said: In John’s baptism? Then Paul said: John baptized the people with the baptism of penance, saying: That they should believe in him who was to come after him, that is to say, in Jesus. Having heard these things, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had imposed his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. And all the men were about twelve. And entering into the synagogue, he spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing and exhorting concerning the kingdom of God.


Psalm 106:1

Alleluia. V. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good: and His mercy endureth forever.

Psalm 116:1-2

O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. V. For his mercy is confirmed upon us: and the truth of the Lord remaineth for ever.

Descent of the Holy Spirit - DYCK, Sir Anthony van


John 14: 15-21

At that time: Jesus said unto His disciples: If you love Me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Paraclete, that He may abide with you for ever. The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, nor knoweth Him: but you shall know Him; because He shall abide with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you. Yet a little while: and the world seeth Me no more. But you see Me: because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know, that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them; he it is that loveth Me. And he that loveth Me, shall be loved of My Father: and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.


Psalm 103: 30, 31

Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created, and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure for ever, alleluia.


Sanctify, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the gifts we offer Thee; and cleanse our hearts by the light of the Holy Ghost. Through our Lord.


By thine own mercy, O Lord, and the intercession of Blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, may this oblation procure us peace and happiness, both in this life, and in that which is to come.


Protect us, O Lord, while we assist at thy sacred mysteries: that, being employed in acts of religion, we may serve thee, both in body and mind. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Holy Ghost by Corrado Giaquinto, 1750s


It is truly meet and just, right and availing unto salvation, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty and everlasting God; through Christ our Lord. Who ascending above all the heavens, and sitting at Thy right hand, on this day sent forth the Holy Ghost, as He had promised, on the children of adoption. Wherefore does the whole world rejoice with exceeding great joy; the hosts above and also the angelic powers join in singing the hymn to Thy glory, saying without ceasing:


In communion with, and keeping the most holy day of Pentecost, whereon the Holy Ghost appeared to the Apostles in countless tongues; venerating also in the first place the memory of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, our Lord and God.


This oblation, therefore, of our bounden duty and that of Thy whole family we beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept, which we make unto Thee on behalf of these whom Thou hast vouchsafed to bring to a new birth by water and the Holy Ghost, giving them remission of all their sins; and to order our days.


John 7: 37-39

On the last day of the festivity Jesus said: He that believeth in Me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water: now this He said of the Spirit Which they should receive who believed in Him, alleluia, alleluia.


May the infusion of the Holy Ghost, O Lord, cleanse our hearts, and render them fruitful by the inward sprinkling of His dew. Through our Lord.


Having received, 0 Lord, what is to advance our salvation; grant we may always be protected by the patronage of Blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, in whose honor we have offered this Sacrifice to thy Majesty.


We beseech thee, O Lord our God, not to leave exposed to the dangers of human life, those whom thou hast permitted to partake of these divine mysteries. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
