    Holy Spirit,

    And streams on the dry ground;

    “This one will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’;

    O most Blessed Light Divine,

    Ezekiel 37:1-14
    The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones. He caused me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley; and lo, they were very dry. He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.’” So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.’”

    So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore, prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, My people. I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken and done it,” declares the Lord.’”

    Where you are not, we have naught.
    Nothing good in deed or thought
    Nothing free from taint of ill.

    Isaiah 11:1-4
    Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
    And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
    The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
    The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
    The spirit of counsel and strength,
    The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
    And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
    And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
    Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
    But with righteousness He will judge the poor
    And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth.

    V: Renew your wonders in the Church of our day and in each one of us, as by a new Pentecost. Increase in us the Spirit of Piety, we pray to the Lord.

    R: Lord, hear our prayer.

  • Day Seven

    Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
    On our dryness pour your dew;
    Wash the stains of guilt away.

    Isaiah 61:1-3
    The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
    Because the Lord has anointed me
    To bring good news to the afflicted;
    He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    To proclaim liberty to captives
    And freedom to prisoners;
    To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord
    And the day of vengeance of our God;
    To comfort all who mourn,
    To grant those who mourn in Zion,
    Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
    The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
    The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
    So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
    The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

    V: Renew your wonders in the Church of our day and in each one of us, as by a new Pentecost. Increase in us the Spirit of Fear of the Lord, we pray to the Lord.

  • Day Eight

    Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
    On our dryness pour your dew;
    Wash the stains of guilt away.

    Bend the stubborn heart and will.
    Melt the frozen, warm the chill.
    Guide the steps that go astray.

    Romans 8:11-18
    If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

    V: Renew your wonders in the Church of our day and in each one of us, as by a new Pentecost. Increase in us the Spirit of Faith, Hope and Love, we pray to the Lord.

    R: Lord, hear our prayer.

  • Day Nine

    On the faithful, who adore.
    And confess you, evermore.
    In Your sevenfold
    gift descend.
    Give us virtue’s sure reward.
    Give us your salvation, Lord.
    Give us joys that never end.

    Amen. Alleluia.

    Acts 2:1-5
    When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.

    V: Renew your wonders in the Church of our day and in each one of us, as by a new Pentecost. Increase in us the desire to receive all that you desire to give us, we pray to the Lord.

    R: Lord, hear our prayer.

  • Closing Prayer

    Come Holy Spirit,
    Renew your wonders in this our day,
    as by a new Pentecost.
    Grant to your Church that,
    being of one mind and steadfast in prayer with Mary,
    the Mother of Jesus,
    and following the lead of the successors of Saint Peter and the Apostles,
    it may advance the reign of our Divine Savior,
    the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace.
    Amen
