PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
(prayed by Father Kentenich during his sermon on Pentecost Sunday, 1965 in the parish of St. Michael, Milwaukee. Cardinal Mercier (1851-1926) is partially quoted)
you are the soul of my soul.
I humbly adore you.
Enlighten me, strengthen me,
guide me, comfort me.
Reveal your wishes to me
as far as this is in accordance
with the will of the Eternal Father.
Show me what Eternal Love wants of me.
Show me what I should do.
Show me what I should suffer.
Show me what I should humbly and
thoughtfully accept, bear and endure.
Holy Spirit, show me your will
and the will of the Father,
for I want my whole life to be nothing else
than a continuous, an everlasting yes
to the wishes, to the will of God,
the Eternal Father.
