PENTECOST NOVENA
(9 days leading to Pentecost, May 26th-June 2nd)

Holy Spirit, third Person of the Blessed Trinity,
Spirit of truth, love, and holiness,

proceeding from the Father and the Son,
and equal to Them in all things,
I adore You with all my heart.

Holy Spirit, confiding in Your deep,
personal love for me,
I am making this novena for the following request,
if it should be Your Holy Will to grant it:

(State your request here…)

Teach me, Divine Spirit,
to know and seek my last end;
grant me the holy fear of God;
grant me true contrition and patience.
Do not let me fall into sin.
Give me an increase of faith, hope, and charity,
and bring forth in my soul
all the virtues proper to my state of life.

Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus
and an obedient child of the Church.
Give me efficacious grace
sufficient to keep the Commandments
and to receive the Sacraments worthily.
Give me the four Cardinal Virtues,
Your Seven Gifts,
Your Twelve Fruits.
Raise me to perfection in the state of life
to which you have called me
and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.
I ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

An Imminent Threat to Religious Liberty
Board Bill 203 was recently introduced to the Board of Alderman for the City of St. Louis. The goal of this bill is to change the city’s anti-discrimination law by adding pregnancy and reproductive health decisions as protected classes. 

We ask that everyone, particularly those who reside in the city, phone, email or send a letter to the St. Louis City Board of Alderman and urge them to defeat Board Bill 203.
