make me holy


Pentecôte by Restout, 1732

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
   that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
   that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
   that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
   to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
   that I always may be holy.

St. Augustine of Hippo, 354-430


But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
