DAY NINE
GOD The Evangeliser (Holy Spirit)

SCRIPTURAL READING
“Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.   At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd but they were confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language.   They were astounded and in amazement they asked, “Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?  Then how does each one of us hear them in his own native language?”…(Acts 2, 5-8)

MEDITATION
“Jesus said to them:  ‘The times and occasions are set by my Father’s own authority and it is not for you to know when they will be.   But when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”…(Acts 1, 7-8)

PRAYER
Lord Holy Spirit,
come down upon Your sons and daughters
who proclaim the message of salvation.
Perform miracles in the sky above
and wonders on the earth below.
That people of every race and nation
will believe in Christ Jesus, our Savior.
Come, Holy Spirit, we plead;
make us holy as Our Father.
Guide us in our pilgrim way,
for without You no fruits will be gathered,
with You all things come true.
Eternal Holy Spirit,in Your mercy,
please grant my special petition:

in the perfect possession of You forever in heaven.

DAY EIGHT
GOD The Divine Mercy (Jesus)

SCRIPTURAL READING
“They went about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to where ever they heard He was.   Whatever villages or towns or countryside He entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged Him that they might touch only the tassel on His cloak;  and as many as touched it were healed.”...(Mk. 6:55-56)

MEDITATION
“Jesus went all over Galilee, teaching in the synagogues, preaching the Good News about the Kingdom, and healing people who had all kinds of diseases and sickness.   The news about Him spread through the whole country of Syria, so that people brought to Him all those who were sick, suffering from all kinds of diseases and disorders:  people with demons and epileptics and paralytics – Jesus healed them all.”…(Mt. 4, 23-24)

PRAYER
Lord Jesus Christ,
You showed Your love and compassion
for the poor and the sick,
curing everyone who came to You in faith, or in hope.
No one who appealed to You, was ever disappointed,
be they believers or not – both saints and sinners.
Please pour down Your mercies upon us
who are sick and wounded in the struggles
we face in life.
Have mercy on us Lord,
on our infirmities caused by human frailty and sinfulness.
Touch Lord, our aching bodies and spirits
with Your merciful love.
Bless me through the love with which You plead for us
before the throne of God,

may not be lost on me.

DAY SEVEN
GOD The Provider (Father)
“Gives us this day our daily bread”

SCRIPTURAL READING
When Jesus had said this, He raised His eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come.   Give glory to Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify You.   Just as You gave Him authority over all people, so that He may give eternal life to all You gave Him.   Now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God and the one whom You sent, Jesus Christ.   I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that You gave Me to do. Now glorify Me, Father, with You, with the glory that I had with You before the world began.
“I revealed Your name to those whom You gave Me out of the world.   They belonged to You and You gave them to me and they have kept Your word.   Now they know that everything You gave Me, is from You, because the words You gave to Me I have given to them and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from You and they have believed that You sent Me.”…(Jn. 17:1-8)

MEDITATION
“So do not start worrying:   Where will my food come from?   Or my drink?   Or my clothes?   These are the things the pagans are always concerned about.   Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things.   Instead be concerned about everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what He required of you and He will provide You with all those other things.   So do not worry about tomorrow;  it will have enough worries of its own.   There is no need to add to the trouble each day brings.”… (Mt. 6:31-34)

PRAYER
We praise and thank You, Father
for Your unfailing gift of Divine Providence.
You feed the birds of the air
and clothe the lilies of the field.
But You provide so much more generously
for Your sons and daughters, who obey and follow Your will.
Bless we pray, the poor and the needy,
not only with spiritual gifts
but also with food, to sustain body
and soul and with their other earthly needs.
Eternal Father in Your mercy,
please grant my special petition:

and all my actions be always conformed to Your holy Will.

may I come at last to see You face to face,
in the perfect possession of You forever in heaven.
Amen

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, amen.holy trinity novena - day seven - 24 may 2018

GOD The Sanctifier (Holy Spirit)

SCRIPTURAL READING
While meeting with them, He enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem, but wait for “the promise of the Father about which you have heard me speak; for John baptized you with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.   And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim…(Acts 1:4-5, 2:3-4)

MEDITATION
“It is best for you that I go away, because if I do not go, the Helper will not come to you. But if I do go away, then I will send Him to you.   And when He comes, He will prove to the people that they were wrong about sin and about what is right and about God’s judgement.   They are wrong about sin because they did not believe in Me; they are wrong about what is right because I am going to the Father.”…(Jn. 16:7-8)

PRAYER
Come, Holy Spirit, we need You.
Come, Holy Spirit, we pray.
Come with Your strength and Your power,

God the Anointed Savior (Jesus)

SCRIPTURAL READING
He has provided us a mighty Saviour, a descendant of His servant David.   He promised through His holy prophets long ago, that He would save us from our enemies, from the power of all those who hate us.   He said He would show mercy to our ancestors and remember His sacred covenant.   With a solemn oath to our ancestor Abraham, He promised to rescue us from our enemies and allow us to serve Him without fear, so that we might be holy and righteous before Him all the days of our life in His presence...(Lk. 1:69-75)

MEDITATION
Do not be afraid Mary, God has been gracious to you.   You will become pregnant and give birth to a son and you will name him Jesus.   He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High God.’   Mary said to the angel, ‘ I am a virgin, how then can this be?’ The angel answered:  ‘The Holy Spirit will come on you and God’s power will rest upon you.   For this reason, the holy Child will be called the Son of God.”…(Lk. 1:30-35)

PRAYER
Lord Jesus Christ,
You gave us the Eucharist
as a memorial of Your suffering and death,
may our worship of the Sacrament of Your Body and Blood,
help us to experience the salvation You won for us
and the peace of the kingdom
where You live with the Father
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Bless me through the marvellous goodness
of Your Sacred Heart, which chose death to bring us life.

DAY FOUR
GOD THE CREATOR (Father)
“In the beginning, when God created the universe”

SCRIPTURAL READING
In the beginning, when God created the Heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wasteland and darkness covered the abyss, while the mighty wind swept over the waters.
Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw how good the light was. God then separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.”   Thus evening came, and the morning followed – the first day.
Then God said: “Let there be a dome in the middle of the waters, to separate one body of water from another.”   And so it happened: God made the dome, and it separated the water above the dome from the water below it.   God called the dome “the sky.” Evening came, and morning followed – the second day.
Then God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered into a single basin, so that the dry land may appear.” And so it happened: the water under the sky was gathered into a basin, and the land appeared…Genesis 1:1-9

MEDITATION
“And so the whole universe was completed.   By the seventh day, God finished what He had been doing and stopped working.   He blessed the seventh day and set it apart as special, because by that day He had completed His creation and stopped working and that is how the universe was created.” ...Genesis 2:1-4

PRAYER
God Eternal Father,
bless me through the love,
with which You have begotten Your only Son
from all eternity and shared with Him,
the fullness of Your Divinity.
Bless me through the love, which has adopted us as children
and made us partakers, of the treasures of Your Divinity.
Bless me through the love, which sent us Your Son
and the Holy Spirit to work the miracles of Your power
and mercy in us.
Grant that I may always revere and honour You
as my great God
and love You with my whole heart
as the best of fathers.
Eternal Father, please grant my petition:
…………………….(mention your petition)
Godhead indivisible, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
our first beginning and our last end,
You have made us after Your own image and likeness.
Grant that all the thoughts of my mind,
all the words of my mouth,
all the affections of my heart
and all my action, be always conformed to Your holy Will.
After having seen You here below in Your manifestations
and by faith, may I come at last,
to see You face to face,
in the perfect possession of You
forever in heaven. Amen.

Moses said: “The Lord, the lord, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity, continuing His kindness for a thousand generation, and forgiving wickedness and crime and sin; yet not declaring the guilty, guiltless, but punishing children and grandchildren to the third and fourth generation for their fathers’ wickedness!” (Ex. 34, 6-7)DAY FOUR - HOLY TRINITY NOVENA - 21 MAY 2018

DAY THREE
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
“I will send you the Holy Spirit”

SCRIPTURAL READING
But when He comes, the Spirit of Truth, He will guide you to all truth.   He will not speak on His own but He will speak what He hears and will declare to you the things that are coming.   He will glorify Me, because He will take from what is Mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is Mine;  for this reason I told you that He will take from you what is Mine and declare it to you...John 16:13-15

MEDITATION
“Do not leave Jerusalem but wait for the Gift I told you about, the Gift my Father promised. John baptised with water but in a few days, you will be baptised with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1, 4-5) “Baptise all nations in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Mt. 28, 19) Now this is the abiding presence of the Blessed Trinity.

PRAYER
Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of Thy faithful
and enkindle in them, the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy Spirit
and they shall be created,
and Thou shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray:
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that through the same Holy Spirit
we may be ever truly wise
and enjoy His consolation,

DAY TWO
GOD THE SON
“This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

 

SCRIPTURAL READING
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.   He was in the beginning with God.   All things came to be through Him and without Him nothing came to be.   What came to be through Him was life and this life was the light of the human race;  the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it…John 1:1-5

MEDITATION
At the Baptism of Jesus and at the Transfiguration, the Father’s words were heard:  “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well-pleased, listen to Him”:  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have eternal life.”;   “So that all who will honour the Son, in the same way as they honour the Father.   Who does not honour the Son, does not honour the Father, who sent Him.” (Jn. 5,23)

PRAYER
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day, He rose again.
He ascended into Heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
From thence He shall come, to judge the living and the dead.
Bless me through the marvelous goodness
of Your Sacred Heart, which chose death to bring us life.
Bless me through the love with which You plead for us
before the throne of God,
bless me in the Blessed Sacrament
with which You give Yourself to us in Holy Communion.
Grant that all this love and bitter pain,
may not be lost on me.

“None of us lives for himself only, none of us dies for himself only;  if we live, it is for the Lord that we live and if we die, it is for the Lord we die.   Whether we live or die, then, we belong to the Lord.   For Christ died and rose to life in order to be the Lord of the living and the dead.”…(Romans 14:7-9)holy trinity novena day two - 19 may 2018
