Come Holy Spirit


This traditional Catholic prayer, Veni, Sancte Spiritus, asks for the grace of the Holy Spirit. Its Biblical foundation comes from Psalm 104:30: "You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the earth.” The prayer, also known as the "Golden Sequence," appears in the Propers for the feast of Pentecost in both the Mass and Divine Office, and also in the votive Mass of the Holy Spirit. The first part, which has a partial indulgence attached to it, is the antiphon for the Magnificat for Pentecost. The Veriscle and response are associated with the readings for the feast. The collect is found also in the votive Mass. Attributed to either the 13th century Pope Innocent III or to the Archibishop of Canterbury Stephen Langton, Veni Sancte Spiritus is one of only four medieval sequences which were preserved in the Missale Romanum, published in 1570. The prayer is used in the Cursillo Movement of the Episcopal Church for nurturing leadership among laity.
