Prayer to the Holy Spirit

From today's readings : "If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the holy Spirit to those who ask him?" --- Luke 11:13

Here is a beautiful prayer to the Holy Spirit that was on the back of a prayer card that was given to me by a sweet fellow pilgrim I met in Lisieux during my pilgrimage last Thursday.

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit
That my thoughts may all be holy,

Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
That my work too, may be holy,

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
That I love but what is holy,

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
To defend all that is holy,

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
That I always may be Holy.
-St Augustine
