I know you are to begin the Novena 9 days BEFORE Pentecost(which is this Sunday, the 23rd) and I HAVE; I just haven’t gotten around to actually posting it until now!
O Holy Spirit, give me stillness of soul in You.Calm the turmoil within the gentleness of your peace. Quiet the anxiety within with a deep trust in You. Heal the wounds of sin within with the joy of Your forgiveness. Strengthen the faith within with the awareness of Your Presence. Confirm the hope within with the knowledge of your strength. Give fullness to the love within with the knowledge of Your strength. Give fullness to the love within with an outpouring of Your love. O Holy Spirit, be to me a source of light, strength,and courage so that I may hear Your call ever more clearly and follow it more generously.Amen – William Browning, C.P
