Opening Prayer

Come, Holy Ghost

V. Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful;
R. And kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created;
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. 

Let Us Pray
O God, Who hast instructed the hearts of the Faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant we beseech Thee, that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation, through Christ Our Lord. Amen. 

Closing Prayer

Prayer to St. Michael, the Archangel

ST. MICHAEL the Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin and destruction of souls. Amen.
