Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 9
June 4, 2022
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 now for 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!
Tomorrow is Pentecost!! May we receive a great outpouring of grace from the Father! Come, Holy Spirit!
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
The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them:
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love.
Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal,
the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth,
the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining Heaven,
the Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with Thee, and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,
the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,
the Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable,
the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God, and may dread in any way to displease Him.
Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit. Amen.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
