Pentecost Novena to the Holy Spirit for the Seven Gifts
Day Five – 15 May 2018

If Thou take Thy grace away,
Nothing pure in man will stay;
All his good is turned to ill.

Understanding, as a gift of the Holy Ghost, helps us to grasp the meaning of the
truths of our holy religion.   By faith we know them but by Understanding, we learn to
appreciate and relish them.   It enables us to penetrate, the inner meaning of revealed
truths and through them, to be quickened to newness of life.   Our faith ceases to be
sterile and inactive but inspires a mode of life, that bears eloquent testimony, to
the faith that is in us, we begin to “walk worthy of God in all things pleasing, and
increasing in the knowledge of God.”

Come, O Spirit of Understanding and enlighten our minds, that we may know and
believe all the mysteries of salvation and may merit at last, to see the eternal
light of Thy Light and in the light of glory, to have a clear vision of Thee and the
Father and the Son.  Amen.

Our Father
Hail Mary
Glory be to the Father (seven times)

Act of Consecration and Prayer for the Seven Gifts: six pentecost novena - 16 MAY 2018


Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
