Veni Creator Spiritus

Prompted to begin a nine-day novena for the  Election of the Pope.

Veni, Creator Spiritus
Veni, Creator Spiritus
Mentes tuorum visita
Imple superna gratia
Quae tu creasti pectora


Qui diceris Paraclitus
Altissimi donum Dei
Fons vivus, ignis, caritas
Et Spiritalis unctio


Tu septiformis munere
Digitus paternæ dexteræ
Tu rite promissum Patris
Sermone ditans guttura


Accende lumen sensibus
Infunde amorem cordibus
Infirma nostri corporis
Virtute firmans perpeti


Hostem repellas longius
Pacemque dones protinus
Ductore sic te prævio
Vitemus omne noxium


Per te sciamus da Patrem
Noscamus atque Filium
Teque utriusque Spiritum
Credamus omni tempore


Deo Patri sit gloria
Et Filio, qui a mortuis
Surrexit, ac Paraclito
In sæculorum sæcula. Amen.
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator

Take possession of our souls
Infuse with heavenly grace
The hearts Thou hast created
Thou Who art called the Paraclete
Best gift of the Most High God
Living fountain, fire, charity
And spiritual unction
Thou sevenfold gift
Finger of God’s right hand
Thou promise of the Father
Teaching speech and understanding
Enkindle the light of our minds
Pour love into our hearts
The infirmity of our body
Confirm with perpetual strength
Repulse the enemy even further
And give peace in his stead
May Thou so lead us
That we evade all harm
Through Thee grant us to know
Father as well as Son
And with Both Thee, Spirit, Trinity
Forever may we believe in
Let glory be to God the Father
And to the Son, Who from the dead
Has arisen, and the Paraclete
Unto ages of ages. Amen.
Collect for the Election of the Supreme Pontiff (From the Votive Mass Pro Eligendo Summo Pontifice)
O Lord, with suppliant humility, we entreat Thee, that in Thy boundless mercy Thou wouldst grant the most Holy Roman Church a pontiff, who by his zeal for us, may be pleasing to Thee, and by his good government may be ever honored by Thy people for the glory of Thy name. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son who with Thee livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
V. Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

R. Pray for us who have recourse to thee!
