Today is the final day of the Holy Spirit Novena in preparation for the Feast of Pentecost, which we will celebrate tomorrow.

This novena to the Holy Spirit is has been 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 Nine

O Lord, Holy Spirit, grant me sight to see the wondrous promise of Divine Love; insight to see my own weakness; delight in Your Divine Presence in my soul which You have made Your temple by Your sanctifying Grace. I pray, O Holy Spirit, that I may be not doubting, that I be spared the pain of being alone without trust or hope in Christ; that my prayer will always be “My Lord and my God.”

I pray that I may acquire a sense of retreat to prayer and recollection at various times in my daily life; for prayer is the bond that joins us to Christ. I pray that I may be aware of the physical needs of the poor and that I may share what I can with them in the charitable works of the Church. I pray, O Holy Spirit, that You will in Your mercy grant me the favor I have sought in this novena. . . .(state your request here) . . .Amen

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

May the Holy Spirit fill you with His many gifts!

Blessings,

Ad Jesum per Mariam,

M.A. J.M.J.
