Today is Day 1 of the Novena to the Holy Spirit in preparation for Pentecost Sunday (Go to Praymorenovenas.com to continue this Novena over the weekend.)

Morning prayer:

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Let us bow down in humility at the power and grandeur of the Holy Spirit. Let us worship the Holy Trinity and give glory today to the Paraclete, our Advocate.

Oh Holy Spirit, by Your power, Christ was raised from the dead to save us all. By Your grace, miracles are performed in Jesus’ name. By Your love, we are protected from evil. And so, we ask with humility and a beggar’s heart for Your gift of Charity within us.

The great charity of all the the host of Saints is only made possible by your power, Oh Divine Spirit. Increase in me, the virtue of charity that I may love as God loves with the selflessness of the Saints.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
