Looking for God’s Goodness in contemplation and prayer. The Litany of the Holy Spirit.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter and Helper to be with you forever, the Spirit of Truth. . . . You know this Spirit, for it abides with you and will be in you. —John 14:16–17
During his Lenten hermitage some years ago, Father Richard composed this prayer litany of the Holy Spirit, imagining the Spirit’s many descriptive names. I invite you to read these names of the Spirit slowly as a way to awaken to the Spirit’s presence in your life.
