Let us remember the Upper Room and the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and the Mother of God. Let us pray: ‘Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.’ Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.


Our Father, Who art in the Heavens, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Open unto us the door of thy loving kindness, O blessed Mother of God;
in that we set our hope on thee, we may not go astray;
but through thee may we be delivered from all adversities,
for thou art the salvation of all Christian people.
