O God, who by the mystery of today’s great feast
sanctify your whole Church in every people and nation,
pour out, we pray, the gifts of the Holy Spirit across the face of the earth and,
with the divine grace that was at work when the Gospel was first proclaimed,
fill now once more the hearts of believers.
Through Our Lord Jesus Christ your Son
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit
One God, for ever and ever.
