Pentecost: Novena to the Holy Spirit - Act of Consecration
To be recited daily during the Novena
On my knees, I bow before you, Holy Spirit. I adore the brightness of your purity, the unerring keenness of your justice, and the might of your love. You are the strength and light of my soul. In you I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve you by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against you. Mercifully guard my every thought. Grant that I may always watch for your light, listen to your voice, and follow your gracious inspirations. I cling to you and give myself to you and ask you, by your compassion, to watch over me in my weakness. I now stand at the foot of the cross on which Jesus died, and covering myself with the precious blood of Christ and surrounding myself with his holy light, I implore you sweet Spirit of the Living God, to keep me in your grace that I may never sin against you. Spirit of the Father and the Son, please give me the grace to say to you always and everywhere, “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.” Amen.
