Womb of Fire

Jesus said, "I have come to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!".  (Lk 12:49)
He also said, "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father from heaven give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Lk. 11:13)  When we ask anything in Jesus name that is in accord with the will of the Father, He will give it to us.  How much more then should we be asking for the fire of the Holy Spirit to rain down upon us.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.

V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.

R. And You shall renew the face of the earth. (Ps 104:30)

Let us pray.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Happy Pentecost!
