FOR THE FEAST
OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
(This day) the Father of light
has enlightened the minds of the disciples
by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
May He bless you
and give you the gifts of the Spirit for ever.
May that fire which hovered over the disciples
as tongues of flame
burn out all evil from your hearts
and make them glow with pure light.
God inspired speech in different tongues
to proclaim one faith.
May He strengthen your faith
and fulfill your hope of seeing Him face to face.
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
