Pentecost MMXI:
Urgent Prayers during the Octave of Pentecost

[This post will remain up until Trinity Sunday;
newer posts below.]
The signs seem to point to delicate times in the months ahead. Following the words of the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX / SSPX), Bishop Bernard Fellay (updated), and of the Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, Monsignor Guido Pozzo (also updated), we join ourselves to the following appeal launched today by our friends at Messa in Latino.

It is a different kind of appeal: no signatures, no writing, no complaining... It is an appeal for Masses and prayers, so that the Almighty may provide what is best for His holy Church.

[Considering the signs], Messa in Latino [joined now by Rorate Caeli and, we hope, by all of you, in your churches, chapels, families, prayer groups] takes the liberty of begging all to join in prayer during the entire Pentecost Octave, invoking Almighty God:

That the Fraternity of Saint Pius X may be granted an official position within the Church.

For this intention, under the advice and with the approval of priests who collaborate with Messa in Latino, from Pentecost Sunday to Trinity Sunday, we ask all to say this prayer:

VENI, Sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium, et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.COME, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Emitte Spiritum tuum et creabuntur;
R. Et renovabis faciem terrae.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
DEUS, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere, et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Let us pray:
O GOD, Who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that, by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
And to offer their daily rosary for this intention.

We invite Priests to please add this intention to their personal memento at Holy Mass.
