For those of you who like to pray novenas, here’s a reminder that the Novena to the Holy Spirit starts tomorrow (Friday) and will end on the eve of Pentecost. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this for months! I’ve done it for the past couple of years and always find it to be incredibly powerful. A novena is simply a nine-day series of prayers, and this one focuses on the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit:
- Wisdom: Desire for the things of God, and to direct our whole life and all our actions to His honor and glory
- Understanding: Enable us to know more clearly the mysteries of faith
- Counsel: Warn us of the deceits of the devil, and of the dangers to salvation
- Fortitude: Strengthen us to do the will of God in all things
- Knowledge: Enable us to discover the will of God in all things
- Piety: Love God as a Father, and obey Him because we love Him
- Fear of the Lord: Have a dread of sin and fear of offending God
I won’t be posting the daily prayers here, but you can find them here. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
