O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

Rain Fire From Above!

Come Holy Ghost! Tighten what is loose! Soften what is hard! Bend what is rigid!
Make pure the Bride of the Lord's Anointed One, anointed with Thee!

Being Portuguese, or more specifically, Azorean, I can't pass up mentioning the Portuguese devotion to the Holy Ghost, which I covered here.

My Statue of St. Elizabeth and Holy Ghost Flag.

shrine in Coimbra, Portugal
It's funny how the Latin Rite color of the Holy Ghost is red and the Byzantine Rite color is green and that they form the colors of the Portuguese flag.
