Come Holy Spirit. 
Inflame the hearts of all the faithful 
with a restless zeal 
for a new evangelization.
Embolden those anointed with your grace 
to proclaim the Gospel to people 
of every language, culture, and way of life. 
Make our youth eager to hear 
the voice of the Shepherd tenderly calling them 
to furrow the world with faith, 
plant it with charity, 
and harvest it with hope.
We make this prayer in the name 
of the Lord Jesus, 
who shared your many gifts with us. 
May you dwell with us always 
until we come to dwell with you, our Advocate, 
with Christ, our Savior, and with the Father, forever.
