Novena for the Coming of the Holy Spirit: First Day

holy-spirit

Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
From Your bright and blissful Home
Rays of healing light impart.

O God, You taught the hearts of Your faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit. Grant that by the gift of the same Spirit I may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolations. Amen.

[From: Favorite Novenas to the Holy Spirit, by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D.]

Aeternus has posted a beautiful novena to the Holy Spirit as well.  She writes: “This Traditional Pentecost Novena to the Holy Ghost comes from a 1912 version from the Holy Ghost Fathers. These Fathers are also known by the title of the Spiritians…”

Speaking of Aeternus, if you haven’t seen her photography in recent weeks, take some time to scroll through her posts. Let your spirit be soothed and your soul glory in sheer beauty.  She mentioned to me in a comment that she goes about her days now with her Nikon slung over her shoulder, and I, for one, am reaping the benefits!  Personally, I think her photographs belong in an exhibit!

  1. Lovely photos indeed over there! And thank you for the heads-up on the Novena to the Holy Spirit. I’ve been really excited for this Pentecost.. like a kid when the circus is coming to town– at the seaside. It wouldn’t hurt to corral that into a novena preparation, too. We’re so blessed.

  2. Aren’t they beautiful? They’re all so soft and hazy, nothing sharp or harsh. Aeternus is very gifted.

    I’ve been anticipating and awaiting Pentecost much more than usual myself this year.
