Our Lord Jesus Christ, being seated on the right hand of God, sent, as He had promised, the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles, who, after His Ascension, continued in prayer at Jerusalem, in company with the Blessed Virgin, awaiting the performance of His promise. Let us pray in like manner with the Church: "Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love." (The Roman Missal, 1962)

We have a new priest at St. Pius X helping with the Latin Mass. His name is Father Moses of Jesus and he celebrated the Mass today. I like him. Here is where he is from. I'm excited to learn more about him and the Mission of Divine Mercy.

During his homily, he mentioned that the Sequence used in today's liturgy is a wonderful prayer for all of us sinners to pray, asking the Holy Spirit to be with us. It's a beautiful prayer.


Come, Thou Holy Spirit, come,
and from Thy celestial home
shed a ray of light divine.

Come, Thou Father of the poor,
come, Thou source of all our store,
come, within our bosoms shine.

Thou of Comforters the best,
Thou the soul's delightful guest,
sweet refreshment here below.

In our labour rest most sweet,
pleasant coolness in the heat,
solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine,
shine within these hearts of Thine,
and our inmost being fill.

Where Thou art not, man hath nought,
nothing good in deed or thought,
nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew,
on our dryness pour Thy dew,
wash the stains of guilt away.

Bend the stubborn heart and will,
melt the frozen, warm the chill,
guide the steps that go astray.

On Thy faithful who adore,
and confess Thee evermore,
in Thy sevenfold gifts descend.

Give them virtue's sure reward,
give them Thy salvation, Lord,
give them joys that never end.

Amen. Alleluia.
