March’s Prayer- Come Holy Spirit

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, by the light of the Holy Spirit you have taught the hearts of your faithful.  In the same Spirit, help us to know what is truly right and always to rejoice in your consolation.  We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
