NOVENA IN PREPARATION FOR THE FEAST OF PENTECOST (MAY 31, 2009) FRIDAY, MAY 22ND THROUGH SATURDAY, MAY 30TH
Prayer for everyday of the Novena:
O Lord Jesus Christ Who before ascending into heaven did prom-ise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your apostles and disciples deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul the work of Your grace and
Your love. Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal, the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Your divine truth, the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining heaven, the Spirit of Fortitude, that I may bear my cross with You and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that op-pose my salvation, the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God, and grow perfect in the science of the Saints, the Spirit of Piety that I may find the ser-vice of God sweet and amiable, the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God and may dread to displease Him in any way. Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples and animate me in all things with Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
Of all the feasts of Our Lord, I venture to say, that in a certain sense, the Ascen-sion is the greatest, because it is the su-preme glorification of Christ Jesus. Holy Chu r c h ca l l s t h i s A s c en s i on admirable" (Litany of the Saints), and glorious" (Secret, Mass for the Ascen-sion), and throughout the Divine Office of this feast, she makes us chant the mag-nificence of this mystery. The mystery of Jesus Christs Ascension is represented to us in a manner suitable to our nature: we contemplate the Sacred Humanity rising from the earth and ascending visi-bly towards the heavens.
- From Christ in His Mysteries by Blessed Columba Marmion, O.S.B. (1858-1923)
