Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 1

Dear Family of Mary!

Today we begin the Novena to the Holy Spirit.  It is the only novena prescribed by the Church.  Our Lady loves this novena, and has often asked us to pray to the Holy Spirit with all our hearts. 
Advent 1983 "Begin by calling on the Holy Spirit each day. The most important thing is to pray to the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit descends on earth, then everything becomes clear and everything is transformed."


Monday, January 2, 1984
"Why have you stopped saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit. I have asked you to pray always and at all times so that the Holy Spirit may descend over all of you. Begin again to pray for that."
The visionaries had stopped saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit thinking that it was said only until Christmas
 
Sometime in October 1984 "I would like to guide you spiritually, but I would not know how to help you, if you are not open... I can help you only if you are accessible to my suggestions; I cannot help you if you are not open. The most important in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change."

Our Lady could not be more clear, "When the Holy Spirit descends on earth, then everything becomes clear and everything is transformed."  and "The most important in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change."  With the Holy Spirit everything will change, everything will be clear, everything will be at peace.

Today we will pray for the Gift and fruit of Charity (love).

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 1
Charity

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.
Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, through Christ Our Lord,
Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS.  I took a prayerful walk around the Church yesterday afternoon, and here are a few of the things I saw!
