Feast of Corpus Christi

O God, who in this wonderful Sacrament

have left us a memorial of your Passion,

grant us, we pray, so to revere the sacred mysteries of your Body and Blood

that we may always experience in ourselves the fruits of your redemption.

Who live and reign with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

O Come, Holy Spirit,

fill the hearts of your faithful,

and kindle in them the fire of your love.

Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.

And you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who has taught the hearts of the faithful

by the light of the Holy Spirit,

grant that by the gift of that same Spirit

we may be always truly wise

and ever rejoice in his consolation.

Amen.

Prayer on the feast of the Ascension

 Lord Jesus, you became man and came to live among us.

 For love of us, you suffered and died for us.

 Because you are God, you conquered death and rose on the third day.

 Today you return to your Father and our Father,

 But you promised to remain with us till the end of time,

 And to send us the Holy Spirit.

 We rejoice and thank you, Lord Jesus.

 Come Holy Spirit, purify and transform us,

                                           Kindle within us the fire of your love.                                            

 Amen.
