Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit for the Seven Gifts
Day Five – 15 May 2018
Light immortal! Light Divine!
Visit Thou these hearts of Thine,
And our inmost being fill!
THE GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE
The gift of Knowledge enables the soul to evaluate created things at their true worth
in their relation to God. Knowledge unmasks the pretence of creatures, reveals their
emptiness and points out their only true purpose as instruments in the service of
God. It shows us the loving care of God even in adversity and directs us to glorify
Him in every circumstance of life. Guided by its light, we put first things firs,
and prize the friendship of God beyond all else. “Knowledge is a fountain of life to
him that possesseth it.”
Come, O Blessed Spirit of Knowledge, and grant that I may perceive the will of the
Father; show me the nothingness of earthly things, that I may realise their vanity
and use them only for Your glory and my own salvation, looking ever beyond them to
You and Your eternal rewards. Amen.
Glory be to the Father (seven times)
