Come Holy Spirit, Creator of all
things...You who breathed over the waters at the dawn of creation and brought forth all
living beings...You who filled the apostles when the Risen Lord breathed on them on the
first Easter night, giving them the power to restore life to those dead in sin...You who,
on the last day, will breathe again over all the dead and raise them from the grave--Come!
Come and breathe on our world again, immersed as it is in the Culture of Death! Come, O
Lord and Giver of Life! Defeat the works of death in our midst, that abortion may no
longer stain our land.
We worship You, O Holy
Spirit, and we rejoice in You. We know that no matter how strong the forces of death may
be, we can still find in You the endless source of life. Renew that life in each of us,
and make us worthy apostles of the Culture of Life in our day! Amen.
