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 did it last year and found it to be incredibly powerful. It’s a nine-day series of prayers focusing on the 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 here’s a printable version of the entire novena. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
