NOVENA TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
May 11-19, 2018


First Day Holy Spirit, Lord of light, from your clear celestial height, your pure beaming radiance give. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
O God who has taught the hearts of your faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit; grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolations. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Second Day Come, O Father of the poor, Come with treasures which endure, Come, O light of all that live. Come, Holy Spirit, come
Let us pray
O Holy Spirit, father of the poor, come fill my poverty-stricken soul out of the plenty of your eternal riches. Warn me, I beg, of every opportunity in my daily round of duty, to lay up treasures where no thief approaches nor moth corrupts, that I may enjoy them together with you forever. Amen.

Third Day You of all consoler’s best, visiting the troubled breast, refreshing peace bestow.  Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
O Divine Consoler, and of all Comforters the best, to you do we come in trouble and distress. Do, in the all-powerful name of Jesus, our Redeemer, and out of love for Mary, our sorrowful Mother and your chaste Spouse, come to our assistance and comfort us in all our trials and tribulations. Amen

Fourth Day You in toil are comfort sweet, Pleasant coolness in the heat, Solace in the midst of woe. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
O God, who gives the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, grant to your people the effect of their pious prayers, that on those to whom you have given grace, you may also bestow peace. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen

Fifth Day Light immortal, light divine, Visit these hearts of yours. And our inmost being fill. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
May the Paraclete, who proceeds from you, enlighten our minds, we beseech, O Lord; and even as your Son has promised, may he lead us into all truth. Amen.

Sixth Day If you take your grace away, nothing pure in man will stay; all his good is turned to ill. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
Send down, we ask, O Lord, your Holy Spirit in his might, to the merciful purifying of our hearts and to our sure deliverance from all danger. Who lives and reigns world without end. Amen

Seventh Day Heal our wounds, our strength renew; on our dryness pour your dew; Wash the stains of guilt away. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
Burn up, O Lord, the stains of our hearts in the fire of the Holy Spirit; that chaste of body and clean of heart, our service may be well pleasing to you. Who lives and reigns world without end. Amen.

Eighth Day Bend the stubborn heart and will, Melt the frozen, warm the chill, Guide the steps that go astray. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, come into our hearts; give to all peoples the brightness of your light, that they may be well pleasing to you in unity of faith. Amen

Ninth Day On those who evermore, confess and adore you, in your sevenfold gift descend.  Give them comfort when they die Give them life with you on high, Give them joys which never end. Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Let us pray
Send down upon us, we ask, O Lord, the Holy Spirit, that, inspired and encouraged by him, we may comply with the duties of our state, carry our daily crosses patiently, and grow daily in Christian perfection. Grant us, we beseech through the same Divine Spirit, the intentions of this novena or what is most conducive to our eternal salvation and your glory. Amen
