O HOLY GHOST, Thou art the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity! Thou art the Spirit of truth, love and holiness, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and equal to Them in all things! I adore Thee and love Thee with all my heart. Teach me to know and to seek God, by whom and for whom I was created. Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love of Him. Give me compunction and patience, and do not let me fall into sin.
Increase in me faith, hope and charity, and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life. Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues, Thy seven Gifts and Thy twelve Fruits.
Make me a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, an obedient child of the Church, and a help to my neighbor. Give me the grace to keep the Commandments and to receive the Sacraments worthily. Raise me to holiness in the state of life to which Thou hast called me, and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Grant me also, O Holy Ghost, Giver of all good gifts, the special favor for which I ask (name it), if it be for Thy honor and glory and for my well-being.
Glory be to the Father and, to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Pentecost Sunday and Easter Sunday are of the same Rank but most Catholics and the Fathers don’t treat them equally.
We are now in the original Easter Season. Pentecost Sunday is the last SUNDAY of the Easter Season (Pasch). Catholics are getting more like protestants. After resurrection Sunday, it’s all over. The day that Heaven gets opened is Ascension Thursday, Mostly forgotten. PentecostSunday is an equal Rank with Resurrection Sunday and unless family’s are involved with confirmation, that to is mostly forgotten.
Unfortunately the importance of Pentecost Sunday has been elevated over the fact that it’s listed as the first day of the General Judgment in the Scriptures, A Holy day of Obligation and Tradition. The birthday of the Hebrew and Catholic Church. The ten Commandments and the Holy Ghost.
Paul VI and Vatican Council II brought us into the “Great Apostasy (schism)” spoken of by St. Paul and the Apostles. The Great Apostasy lasts about 45 to 50 years (from 1969) so this raises the importance more so accept for the Great Biblical Chastisement which should take place during Lent.
Paul VI is listed in the Scriptures as the, “Man of Sin.” and the first of the many AntiChrist’s before Our Lord returns.
