Novena to the Holy Spirit Begins on Friday

Esther reminds us that the novena to the Holy Spirit begins tomorrow. (I’m not late! Hooray! Now I can sign up for novena reminders at Aquinas and More!! And you can do the same. It’s free and comes in your email for nine days.) This is the very first novena, as EWTN’s site tells us.

The novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light and strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.
