Pray for Favorable Reception of the "Motu Proprio"

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf of "What Does the Prayer Say?" posted an excellent prayer the other day for "the good reception of the Motu Proprio which will derestrict the older form of Mass, the so-called Tridentine rite":

May the hard of heart yield to the Holy Spirit when hearing of Vicar of Christ’s will.
May the eager rejoice graciously and with true thanksgiving to God.
May the ignorant seek first to learn before making judgments.
May the learned offer comments in charity.
May our priests use considered prudence.
May our bishops be generous and paternal.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created
And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
O God Who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that, by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord.
