O Holy Spirit, Divine Consoler!
I adore you as my True God.

You are the author of all supernatural gifts
and enriched the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the Mother of God,

I so earnestly seek…

O Holy Spirit,
spirit of truth, come into our hearts:

DAY ONEpentecost-holy-spirit-desce

O Holy Spirit,
bestow upon us Your seven holy gifts.
Enlighten our understanding that we may know You.
Give us wisdom that Your will may be clear to us
and that we may accept it.
Grant us the gift of counsel
that we may always perceive what is right.
Fortify us that we may always be capable
of fulfilling Your Divine Will.
Inspire us with the spirit of learning
that we may be able to penetrate more deeply
into the truths that You have revealed.
Let our hearts be steeped in the spirit of childlikeness
that we may bring You joy.
Let us have proper fear of God
that we may never grieve You
or wander from the path of goodness. Give us the fulness of Your gifts
that we may glorify You.

Look with compassion upon us,

O Holy Spirit,
and grant us the favor we seek in this novena…

State your request here…

if it be in accordance with Your Holy Will.

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

  1. Back doing this again -love it so – put it on my FB page and asked others to join me for this one –
    I will never be able to tell you how much the softness of your voices and the music means to me as they nuture my body, mind, spirit and heart and they all in turn nurture my soul and ready me for the Day He will come for me.

  2. Thank you Terry for linking this wonderful place! Thank you McGregors! I am going to sit with a dying man tonight, as part of the volunteer program, No One Dies Alone, at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital near me in Michigan. This is a very good meditation to start me off on my prayers for tonight.

  3. Thank you Deacon Keating and Chris McGregor for the beautiful novena prayer to the Holy Spirit. I went through many versions of the novena prayer but this one was very touching. God bless you.

If ever I am looking for a reminder of just how much God loves us all and that He is always watching over us with His merciful love, I just log on and their you all are, my wonderful friends in Christ. Thank you so very much for taking the time to make such a wonderful gift for all those seeking the love and warmth of our loving God. It is so true that we are all one family on the same journey. I will continue to keep you in my prayers always.
