Pentecost Novena - 9th Day

Saturday - The Outpouring of the Spirit at Pentecost

"Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them.
   All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as
   the Spirit gave them the ability."     Acts 2: 3-4

Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts with your love.
Set our lives aflame with your gifts.
Grant us wisdom to choose what is good and true;
understanding to embrace your plan of salvation;
right judgment to act according to your will;
courage to share our faith with others;
knowledge to live as disciples of Jesus Christ;
reverence to respond faithfully to your grace each day;
and wonder and awe in your presence.
Inspire us with enthusiasm for our Catholic faith.
Grant us boldness to proclaim the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ,
and help us to bring the transforming power of the gospel to our world.
We make this prayer through Christ, our Lord.      Amen

1 Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be


  1. Mary,

    Thank you for posting this novena each day. I have been praying along with you. I hope you have a special Pentecost Sunday. Do you have any traditions? We have a wonderful cake, decorated with 12 different fruits and tongues of fire, to eat. Should be delicious!

    God bless you!

  2. You're welcome, Sue. Can I come to your house for Pentecost? Lol! That means: no we don't have any special traditions for this day.
    Yours is a great one though! Enjoy both the day and the cake!
