First Day

Holy Spirit Lord of Light!
From Your clear celestial height,
Your pure beaming radiance give!


The Holy Spirit

Only one thing is important - eternal salvation. Only one thing, therefore, is to be feared - sin. Sin is the result of ignorance, weakness and indifference. The Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Light, of Strength, and of Love. With His sevenfold gifts He enlightens the mind, strengthens the will, and inflames the heart with Love of God. To ensure our salvation we ought to invoke the Divine Spirit daily, for "The Spirit heals our infirmity. We know not what we should pray for as we ought. But the Spirit Himself asksfor us."

Prayer

Almighty and eternal God, Who hast vouchsafed to regenerate us by water and the Holy Spirit, and hast given us forgiveness of all sins, vouchsafe to send forth from heaven upon us Your sevenfold Spirit: the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Fortitude, the Spirit of Knowledge and Piety, and fill us with the Spirit of Holy Fear. Amen

Also pray the Our Father and Hail Mary, The Act of Consecration, The prayer for the Seven Gifts and pray a Glory Be for each gift.
