Novena to Honor Holy Spirit

Novena to the Holy Spirit/
Novena of the Seven Gifts/
Novena Honoring the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit! Lord of Light! From Your clear celestial height, Your pure beaming radiance give!

Today is the first day of the oldest novena in Church history. One could easily say that a novena to the Holy Spirit was first prayed by the apostles when, as directed by Christ, they returned to Jerusalem to wait for the coming of the the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. By its very nature, a novena is prayed nine consecutive days; therefore, this novena is completed after saying the last prayer on the day before Pentecost Sunday.

The links below will take you to EWTN's set up of the prayers:

First Day
Second Day
Third Day
Fourth Day
Fifth Day
Sixth Day
Seventh Day
Eighth Day
Ninth Day

May we all be filled with the Holy Spirit.
