ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY GHOST
On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses I offer myself, soul and body to Thee O Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Thy purity the unerring keenness of Thy justice and the might of Thy love. Thou art the Strength and Light of my soul. In Thee I live move and am. I desire never to grieve Thee by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against Thee. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Thy light and listen to Thy voice and follow Thy gracious inspirations. I cling to thee and give myself to Thee and ask Thee by thy compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart I implore Thee Adorable Spirit Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Thy grace that I may never sin against Thee. Give me grace
O Holy Ghost, Spirit of the Father and of the Son to say to Thee always and everywhere “Speak Lord for Thy servant heareth.” Amen. ( This prayer to be recited daily during the Novena)
