Novena of Holy Spirit: Day 9

Confirmandi after the meditation and Taize evening
Meditation and Taize
During St Peter's Way we have explored different types of prayer.  One evening we learned more about Christian Meditation and Taize.  
Below is a video of the Taize chant Veni Sancte Spiritus - which is very fitting on this eve of Pentecost.  We pray, come Holy Spirit.

Sent With The Power To Reconcile
Thou on those who evermore,
Thee confess and Thee adore,
In Thy sevenfold gifts, descend;
Give them comfort when they die;
Give them life with Thee on high;
Give them joys which never end. Amen.
Father, through Jesus, Your Son, You sent the Paraclete
to be at our side, 
to reconcile all Creation to you.
Grant that I may be forever open to Jesus' invitation to "Receive The Holy Spirit!Father, open our hearts to accept Your forgiveness for our sins and to offer that same forgiveness to those who we feel have offended us.
Come, O Divine Spirit, fill my heart with Your Heavenly Fruits - 
Your charity, joy, peace patience, benignity, goodness, faith, mildness and temperance, that I may, by faithful submission to your Inspiration, merit to be united eternally with You in the love of the Father and the Son. Amen.
