A powerful Prayer to the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit,

third person of the blessed Trinity.

Spirit of truth love and holiness,

proceeding from the Father

and the Son,

and equal to them in all things.

I adore You and love You with all my heart.

Teach me to know and to seek God,

by whom and for whom I was created.

Fill my heart with holy fear and love of God.

Grant me compunction and patience

and allow me not to fall into sin.

Give me an increase of faith, hope &

charity and bring forth in my soul

all the virtues proper to my state of life.

Give me Your four cardinal virtues,

Your seven gifts, and Your twelve fruits.

Make me a faithful follower of Jesus

and an obedient child of the church.

Give me the grace to keep the commandments

and to receive the sacraments worthily.

Raise me to perfection in the state of

life which You have called me.

And lead me to a happy death,

through Jesus Christ, O Lord.

Grant me also O Holy Spirit,

You who are the giver of all good gifts,

the special favor for which I ask…

(mention your request)

if it be for Your greater honor

and the good of my soul.

God bless,




Prayer for my father

Dear God,

hear this prayer,

I now pray for my dad.

Thank you for his life,

for without him, I wouldn’t exist.

Thank you for the memories,

when he cared for me and held me.

Thank you for the lessons,

learned by his examples and his mistakes.

Oh Father God,

Bless my dad

Bless his soul.

And in his failures, let me forgive him,

And love him, as you love us.

Through the spirit, heal the wounds between us.

Please guide his soul

to be with you now in heaven.

You are the father to us all.

Spread out your mercy,

Over all fathers, daughters and sons.

For the glory of your son,

Jesus Christ.

In His holy name,


Ave Maria de Lourdes France

On our fifth visit to Lourdes France, we were able to participate in the nightly rosary vigil. It starts at 9 pm and lasts for about an hour. Same feeling of peace and hope enveloped me as we sang to the hymns and recitation of the rosary. Chanted with various languages I may not know but still familiar and heartfelt. The procession is more than a ceremony that for devotees like us – is a time of prayer and peace. 


I’d like to share the hymn – “Ave Maria de Lourdes” in French. As seen on a short clip I recorded below.

Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!

O Vierge Marie, le peuple Chrétien,
à Lourdes vous prie, chez vous il renvient.

Le fond de la roche s’éclaire à l’instant:
la dame s’approche, fait signe à l’enfant.

“Venez, je vous prie, ici, quinze fois,
avec vos amies entendre ma voix.”

Avec insistance la dame,
trois fois, a dit: “pénitence”
Chrétien, c’est pour toi!

“A cette fontaine venez et buvez;
dans l’eau pure et sainte
allez vous laver.”

“Je veux qu’ici même,
au pied de ces monts,
le peuple que j’aime
vienne en procession.”



much love,

Intercessory Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima

O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary,

you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message.

We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary.

By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein, may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
