May 22, 2021 Reflection -Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 9

Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 9 May 22, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 9 Our Lady prays to the Holy Spirit for us: June 25, 2002 “Dear children! Today I pray for you and with you that the Holy Spirit may help you and increase your faith, so that you may accept even more the messages that I am giving you here in this holy place. Little children, comprehend that this is a time of grace for each of you; and with me, little children, you are secure. I desire to lead you all on the way of holiness. Live my messages and put into life every word that I am giving you. May they be precious to you because they come from Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.” In this message, Our Lady tells us she is praying for us and with us that the Holy Spirit may help us and increase our faith, so that we will be able to accept even more the messages she is giving us in Medjugorje, this holy place!! She is asking her great Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to anoint us, open our minds and increase our faith, so we can understand what she is saying to us in her messages. She needs His help and so do we!! Certainly Our Lady receives these messages from the Father and Jesus, through the Holy Spirit. She then gives them to us through her visionaries. But the process isn’t finished until we receive the messages with open hearts, anointed and ready to receive them in the power of the Holy Spirit!! Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can we accept the messages more deeply. Our Lady, the Queen of Peace, has been with us for nearly 40 years, giving us messages from her heart, messages of faith, hope, love, peace, joy, truth, correction and consolation. She has faithfully spoken to us through her visionaries, desiring that we become part of the great plan for the world that God has been enacting through her. Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to help us and increase our faith, so that we can accept and live Our Lady’s messages more deeply than ever before in this time of grace. The world needs Our Lady of Medjugorje, and we are her messengers, those who live her messages with the heart, who listen to the Holy Spirit and do that which He inspires us to do! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreated and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen Come Holy Spirit Come, Holy Spirit, Creator blest, and in our souls take up Thy rest; come with Thy grace and heavenly aid to fill the hearts which Thou hast made. O Comforter, to Thee we cry, O heavenly gift of God Most High, O Fount of Life and Fire of Love, and Sweet Anointing from above. Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known; Thou, finger of God’s hand we own; Thou, promise of the Father, Thou Who dost the tongue with power imbue. Kindle our senses from above, and make our hearts o’erflow with love; with patience firm and virtue high the weakness of our flesh supply. Far from us drive the foe we dread, and grant us Thy peace instead; so shall we not, with Thee for guide, turn from the path of life aside. Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow the Father and the Son to know; and Thee, through endless times confessed, of both the eternal Spirit blest. Now to the Father and the Son, Who rose from death, be glory given, with Thou, O Holy Comforter, henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2021
