Enlighten the Dark Corners

'O Holy Spirit, Love of God, infuse Your grace! 
Plentifully descend into my heart.
Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling.
Dwell in that soul that longs to be Your temple. 
Water that barren soil, overrun with weeds and briars
and lost to fruitfulness for want of cultivating. 
Make it fruitful with Your gracious beams,
Your dew from heaven..
Come, Holy Spirit, in much mercy! 
Make me fit to receive You.' 

St. Augustine
