The Novena for Pentecost is a 9 day prayer leading up to Pentecost Sunday. It starts today. Each day I will post the intentions and scripture readings to ponder.
The Novena prayer follows the same pattern each day…
Begin by invoking the Holy Spirit using Pope Saint John XXIII’s prayer:
Renew your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost.
Grant to your Church that,
being of one mind and steadfast in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus,
and following the lead of Blessed Peter,
it may advance the reign of our Divine Saviour,
the reign of truth and justice,
the reign of love and peace. Amen
Come, Holy Spirit, in your power and might to renew the face of the earth.
Follow the daily theme by taking some by reflecting upon the Scriptures.
Pray for the specific intercession.
Conclude each day with the Pentecost Sequence
