Prayer: The Golden Sequence of Pentecost

This is a version of the Golden Sequence that is prayed before the proclamation of the Gospel on Pentecost Sunday.

Come, Holy Spirit,
send forth the heavenly
radiance of your light.

Come, father of the poor,
come giver of gifts,
come, light of the heart.

Greatest comforter,
sweet guest of the soul,
sweet consolation.

In labor, rest,
in heat, temperance,
in tears, solace.

O most blessed light,
fill the inmost heart
of your faithful.

Without your divine will,
there is nothing in man,
nothing is harmless.

Wash that which is unclean,
water that which is dry,
heal that which is wounded.

Bend that which is inflexible,
warm that which is chilled,
make right that which is wrong.

Give to your faithful,
who rely on you,
the sevenfold gifts.

Give reward to virtue,
give salvation at our passing on,
give eternal joy.

Amen. Alleluia.

  1. I say a version of this prayer every night. It gives me great solace and has deepened my love and relationship with the Lord. I am also learning how to pray this prayer in sign language.
