May, 2017


Everyone is Welcome!  We have a seat for you.

(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.
