Envía tu Espíritu; sea renovada la faz de la tierra



Veni, Creator Spíritus,
mentes tuórum visita,
imple supérna grátia,
quae tu creásti péctora.
Qui díceris Paráclitus,
altíssimi donum Dei,
fons vivus, ignis, cáritas,
et spiritális únctio.
Tu septifórmis múnere,
dígitus paternae déxterae,
tu rite promíssum Patris,
sermóne ditans gúttura.
Accénde lumen sénsibus;
infunde amórem córdibus,
infírma nostri córporis
virtúte firmans pérpeti.



Remember, Pentecost is the Fiftieth Day of Easter. Not too early to invoke the One given behind locked doors before the great public outburst.

We sang the Gregorian "Veni, Creator Spiritu" when I was growing up, so I could easily sing along, especially with the words posted.

May the Holy Spirit guide all those who will be electing the new bishop for the Diocese of Rio Grande.
