Holy Spirit Novena Day Seven

As we continue to anticipate the outpouring of the Holy spirit on Pentecost let us together prepare our hearts with Day Seven of the Novena to the Holy Spirit. This novena is currently prayed each day after Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians at Holy Hill.

Each day the Preparatory prayer is:

O Holy Spirit, Divine Consoler!

I adore You as my Triune 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 unceasingly bestow upon the world. You are the author of all supernatural gifts and Who did enrich with immense favors 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 favor I so earnestly seek in this novena. . . .(state your request here). O Holy Spirit, Spirit of all Truth, come into our hearts: shed the brightness of your light on all nations, that they may be of one faith and pleasing to You. Amen.

Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Love.

(Recite the prayer of the appropriate day)

Day Seven

Come, Holy Spirit, creator of all things: come and visit our hearts with Your power. Fill with grace, friendly guest, the hearts which You have created. You are called the Consoler, the Gift from the Hand of God, the Source of Life, Light, Love, and Flame; the Highest Good. You are the pledge of the sevenfold grace, finger of the Father’s hand, promised us by Him, and You make our tongues speak the truth. Cast light upon our senses, pour love into our hearts. Grant our weak bodies strength that they may never grow weary of doing good holy and grant me the favor I so earnestly seek in this novena. . .(state your request here). .

Keep the enemy far from us, give us peace always, let us willingly follow in Your footsteps that we may be far removed from sin. Grant that through You we may grow in knowledge if the Father and of the Son, and that we may ever strongly believe in You, the Spirit of both. Praise and honor be forever to the Father on the highest throne and to the Son of God, in the Consoler. Amen.

Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Love.

May the Holy Spirit give you His peace!

Blessings,

Ad Jesum per Mariam,

M.A. J.M.J.
