Day 4: Novena to the Holy Spirit

Day 4: Novena to the Holy Spirit

Let us always bear in mind that at our baptism we became temples of the living God and that every time we turn our minds to worldly things, to the devil and the flesh which we renounced at baptism, we are profaning this sacred temple of God.
Keep in good spirits, abandon yourself to the Divine Heart of Jesus, leaving all your anxieties to Him. Consider yourself always last among our Lord’s lovers. . .clothe yourself with humility toward others, because He resists the proud and gives grace to the humble. The more the graces and favors of Jesus increase in your soul the more you must humble yourself, always keeping in mind the humility of our celestial Mother, who the instant she became the Mother of God, declared herself servant and handmaid of God.
The grain of wheat does not yield anything unless it suffers and decomposes; it is the same for the soul and for nations who need trials and sufferings so as to rise up purified and renewed.
                                                                                                                                                                Padre Pio

Chaplet of the Holy Spirit:

O God, come to my assistance.
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father…

In each mystery ask for a gift of the Holy Spirit.

Repeat this prayer seven times:
“Father, in the Name of Jesus, send forth your Spirit and renew the world.”
Conclude with :
“O Mary, who by the work of the Holy Spirit, conceived the Savior, pray for us.


The seven mysteries invoking the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit:

1- Come, O Spirit of Wisdom, detach us from earthly things and infuse in us a love and taste of heavenly things.
Father, in the Name of Jesus…O Mary, …
2- Come, O Spirit of Understanding, enlighten our minds with the light of your eternal truth and the riches of holy thoughts.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …
3- Come, O Spirit of Counsel, make us docile to your inspirations and guide us in the way of salvation.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …
4- Come, O Spirit of Fortitude , and give us strength, constancy and victory in the battle against our spiritual enemies.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …
5- Come, O Spirit of Knowledge, be the Master of our souls and help us to put into practice Your teachings.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …
6- Come, O Spirit of Piety, come to live in our heart to possess and sanctify all of our affections.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …
7- Come, O Spirit of the Fear of the Lord, reign over our will and make us always disposed to suffer every evil rather than to sin.
Father, in the Name…O Mary, …

Invocation to Mary:
O most pure Virgin Mary, by your Immaculate Conception you were made a chosen tabernacle of Divinity by the Holy Spirit. Pray for us.

May the Divine Paraclete come soon to renew the face of the earth.
Hail Mary, full of grace…
O most pure Virgin Mary, by the Mystery of the Incarnation you became true Mother of God by the Holy Spirit. Pray for us.

May the Divine Paraclete come soon to renew the face of the earth.
Hail Mary, full of grace…
O most pure Virgin Mary, persevering in prayer with the Apostles in the Upper Room, you were abundantly inflamed by the Holy Spirit. Pray for us:

May the Divine Paraclete come soon to renew the face of the earth.
Hail Mary, full of grace…

Let us pray:
Send Your Spirit, Lord, and transform us interiorly with Your gifts. Create in us a new heart that we may please You and be conformed to Your will. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


The prayer of the novena

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 and love You with all my heart. Dearest 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: (mention your request). 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. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
