Collect One

who as at this time didst teach the hearts of thy faithful people,
by the sending to them the light of thy Holy Spirit;
Grant us by the same Spirit
to have a right judgment in all things,

who liveth and reigneth with thee,
in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, world without end.

and to draw everyone to the fire of your love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
