Jan-1 Plenary Indulgence for reciting the following prayer:
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest (Veni, Creator):
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
and in our souls take up your rest;
come with your grace and heavenly aid
to fill the hearts which you have made.
O Comforter, to you we cry,
O heavenly gift of God Most High,
O fount of life and fire of love,
and sweet anointing from above.
You in your sevenfold gifts are known;
you, finger of God's hand we own;
You, promise of the Father,
you Who do the tongue with power imbue.
Kindle our senses from above,
and make our hearts o'er flow with love;
with patience firm and virtue high,
the weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
and grant us your peace instead;
so shall we not, with you for guide,
turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may your grace on us bestow,
the Father and the Son to know;
and you, through endless times confessed,
of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
who rose from death, be glory given, with you,
O holy Comforter, henceforth by all in earth and heaven
