Come Holy Ghost

I understand that the little room has led to further discoveries.

Descende Sancte Spiritus,

Accensus igne protinus;

Combure librum fulmini

Ritumque Novi Ordinis.

Qui diceris saepissime

Coepisse sexagesimis

vicesimi Tu saeculi

Spirare omne noxium:

Accende qui nunc dictitant,

"Mutemus pro novicio

Nefario convicio

Romana haec solemnia."

Incende dein, Paraclitus

Serene, mercennarios

episcopos qui linquunt

oves lupis rapacibus.

Succende qui derideunt

Quodcumque sacris litteris

Scripsere quodam tempore

Prophetice Apostoli.

Malum repellas spiritum

Qui plurimis praeconiis,

(Praedixit hoc Apostolus,)

delectat aures omnium.

Laus inclyto Paraclito,

Qui punit haec peccamina

Cum impiis in Tartaro

In saeculorum saecula.

Descend without delay, O Holy Ghost, alight with flame, and reduce to ashes the book and rite of the 'Novus Ordo' with a lightning blast.

Thou who art said to have begun during the sixties of the 20th century to breath every noxious fume:

Light on fire those who say "Let us exchange the sacred Roman rites with a wicked and newly devised and recently become fashionable insult." (Note: the adj. novicius has many wonderful shades of meaning)

Next burn up, O serene Advocate, the hireling bishops who abandon the sheep to rapacious wolves.

Light up those who mock whatsoever the Apostles once wrote in prophecy as a warning.

Mayest thou drive away the evil spirit which (as the Apostle Paul foretold,) delights the ears of all with very many flattering speeches.

Praise be to the glorious Holy Spirit, who punishes with the impious these sinful crimes in the pit of hell, for ever and ever. Amen.
