O Come Holy Spirit by Theophilia O Come Holy Spirit by Theophilia
"O Come Holy Spirit!"
"Veni, Sancte Spiritus!"
Picture I took on the same day as the "Queen of the May" picture. :D

THE SECRET OF SANCTITY: by Cardinal Mercier

During a retreat, Cardinal Mercier was asked to reveal what he considered "the secret of sanctity," at the convent of the Religious of the Sacred Heart in Brussels, Belgium. Every day, for five minutes restrain your imagination; close your eyes, as it were, and your ears, to all earthly impressions so as to be able to withdraw into the sanctuary of your baptized soul, the Temple of God within. Then address the Holy Spirit in words like this:

O Holy Spirit, Beloved of my soul, I adore You. Enlighten, strengthen, guide, comfort and console me. Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it. I promise to be submissive in everything that You permit to happen to me, only show me what is Your will. (and give me the grace to do it).

If you do this, you will spend your life in contentment and peace. You will have abundant consolation even amidst troubles, for you will receive grace in proportion to your burdens, until the day when you will reach heaven weighted with precious merits. Also called the Secret of Sanctity.


COME, HOLY SPIRIT (Traditional Catholic Prayer)

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

No it's not, but I can believe a lot of churches would have a stained glass window like this, because it imitates the one in the Vatican. :nod:
