Novena to the Holy Spirit


Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth and holiness, proceeding from the Father and the Son and equal to them in all things, I adore you and love you with all my heart.

Dearest Holy Spirit, confiding in your deep, personal love for me, I make this novena for the following intentions(Mention your requests). Grant them to me according to your holy will.

Teach me, Divine Spirit, to seek always the heavenly things; rant me true contrition for my sins and the grace to avoid all occasions of sin. Increase my faith, hope, charity and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life.

Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus and an Obedient Child of the Church. Give me the graces needed to keep the commandments and to receive the sacraments worthily. Grant me your holy gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord. Increase in me your holy fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control and chastity. Raise me to perfection in the state of life to which you have called me and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.
