We are praying the novena below each day from Friday 11th May until Saturday 19th May in preparation for the Feast of Pentecost.
O Blessed Mother you gathered around you the fledgling apostles after your Son ascended to the Heavenly heights to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the new-born Church. We today in our turn ask you to help us to pray and to pray with us for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon our hearts, upon our lives, upon our families, upon the whole world.
Come Holy Spirit come, by means of the most powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Thy well-beloved Spouse. (Say three times)
Come O Spirit Blessed, fill our hearts anew, come in Your Love, to root up from us that which is not Yours. Nourish and bring to fruition that which You have already planted. Plant afresh that which is missing from the garden of our hearts so that You, with the Father and the Son, may rejoice in us and we may be a delight to Your heart. Come Beloved Spirit, set us afire with the blaze of Your love. Come, invigorate our hearts that we may – with great joy – journey to You, to holiness, to love, to peace. Amen.
