Join Us in Praying a Novena to the Holy Spirit

You are invited to join us in a Novena to the Holy Spirit for the nine days leading up to Pentecost, May 18-26.

Set aside a few minutes on each of the nine days to quiet your mind and open your heart in prayer in honor of the Holy Spirit.  We pray for the seven gifts of the holy spirit: wisdom, understanding, right judgment, courage, knowledge, reverence, and wonder and awe of the Lord.

All are welcome to leave prayer intentions as a comment on each day's blog post.

More about the Novena to the Holy Spirit from EWTN:

The novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light and strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.  (read more here)

Mark your calendars and tell your friends!
