A Novena to the Holy Spirit
To be prayed every day for nine days from May 27 to June 4 inclusive.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
O Holy Spirit, Divine Consoler! I adore you as my True God. I bless You by uniting myself to the praises You receive from the angels and saints. I offer You my whole heart, and I render You heartfelt thanks for all the benefits You have bestowed and do unceasingly bestow upon the world. You are the author of all supernatural gifts and who did enrich with immense favours the soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, I beseech you to visit me by Your grace and Your love, and grant me the favour I so earnestly seek in this novena that You inspire, guide and bless the Plan to Revitalize and Realign the Diocese of Saint John for Discipleship and Evangelization; that you bless us and bless our bishop. Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Christ Jesus, before ascending into heaven, You promised to send the Holy Spirit to Your apostles and disciples. Grant that the same Spirit may perfect in our lives the work of Your grace and love.
Grant us the Spirit of Fear Of The Lord that we may be filled with a loving reverence toward You.
Grant us the Spirit of Piety that we may find peace and fulfillment in the service of God while serving others;
Grant us the Spirit of Fortitude that we may bear our cross with You and, with courage, overcome the obstacles that interfere with our salvation;
Grant us the Spirit of Knowledge that we may know You and know ourselves and grow in holiness;
Grant us the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten our minds with the light of Your truth;
Grant us the Spirit of Counsel that we may choose the surest way of doing Your will, seeking first the Kingdom;
Grant us the Spirit of Wisdom that we may aspire to the things that last forever;
Teach us to be Your faithful disciples and animate us in every way with your Spirit. Amen.
Pray: Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory Be
