Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit for the Seven Gifts
Day Two – 12 May 2018
Come, Thou Father of the poor!
Come, with treasures which endure!
Come, Thou Light of all that live!
THE GIFT OF FEAR
The gift of Fear fills us with a sovereign respect for God and makes us dread
nothing so much as to offend Him by sin. It is a fear that arises, not from the
thought of hell but from sentiments of reverence and filial submission to our
heavenly Father. It is the fear that is the beginning of wisdom, detaching us from
the worldly pleasures that could in any way separate us from God. “They that fear the
Lord will prepare their hearts and in His sight will sanctify their souls.”
Come, O blessed Spirit of Holy Fear, penetrate my inmost heart, that I may set You,
my Lord and God, before my face forever, help me to shun all things that can offend
You and make me worthy to appear before the pure eyes of Your Divine Majesty in
heaven, where You live and reign in the unity of the ever Blessed Trinity, God,
world without end. Amen.
Glory be to the Father (seven times)
