“More and more as we grow older, we find that the people we see most of are recent acquaintances; not (perhaps) very congenial to us, but chance has thrown them in our way. Meanwhile, the people we used to know so well—for whom we once entertained such warm feelings—are now remembered by a card at Christmas (if we can succeed in finding the address). How good we are at making friends, when we are young; how bad at keeping them! How eagerly, as we grow older, do we treasure up the friendships that are left to us, like beasts that creep together for warmth!”
— Msgr. Ronald Knox (1888-1957)

RECESSIONAL HYMN   •   #888 Come Holy Ghost, Who Ever One

From the Campion Hymnal.

CHOIR PRAYER (from CAMPION HYMNAL) happens after attendance is taken:

Come, holy Spirit, and from heaven direct on man the rays of Your light.

Come, father of the poor; come, giver of God’s gifts; come, light of men’s hearts.

Kindly Paraclete, in Your gracious visits to man’s soul You bring relief and consolation.

If it is weary with toil, You bring it ease; in the heat of temptation, Your grace cools it; if sorrowful, Your words console it.

Light most blessèd, shine on the hearts of Your faithful—even into their darkest corners; for without Your aid man can do nothing good, and everything is sinful.

Wash clean the sinful soul, rain down Your grace on the parched soul and heal the injured soul.

Soften the hard heart, cherish and warm the ice-cold heart, and give direction to the wayward.

Give Your seven holy gifts to Your faithful, for their trust is in You.

Give them reward for their virtuous acts; give them a death that ensures salvation; give them unending bliss.
