ANTIPHON ÷ The love of God has been poured into our hearts by his Spirit
living in us, alleluia. ÷
LET US PRAY
[that the Holy Spirit may bring peace and unity
to all mankind.] Almighty and ever-living God,
you fulfilled the Easter promise
by sending us your Holy Spirit.
May that Spirit unite the races and nations
on earth to proclaim your glory.
God our Father,
you have given us new birth.
Strengthen us with your Holy Spirit
and fill us with your light.
LET US PRAY [that the flame of the Spirit will descend upon us.]
Father in heaven,
fifty days have celebrated the fullness
of the mystery of your revealed love.
See your people gathered in prayer,
open to receive the Spirit’s flame.
May it come to rest in our hearts
and disperse the divisions of word and tongue.
With one voice and one song
may we praise your name in joy and thanksgiving.
