Praying Pentecost at home

Pope Francis calls for Pentecost Vigil for Holy Land

Celebrating Pentecost

  • Focus on the many different gifts we have.
  • Reflect on how we can share these many gifts.
  • Pray for the children preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this year
  • Create a tree of the Spirit’s fruits – where they have been evident in our lives over the past year – as a community, as a nation, as a global community

Prayers to the Spirit

Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.

Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.

Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy.

Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy.

Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.

Saint Augustine


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 will renew the face of the earth.

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