Title Time Description
Pentecost Novena Day 8 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM 8. Friday, Seventh Week of Easter:

Paul’s letter to the Romans, written from Corinth about 57 CE shortly before the end of his apostolic missions, contains the fullest exposition of the Gospel, as Paul understood it. Given its length and theological depth, it is considered by many to be the most influential document in Christian theology. The power of the Holy Spirit is celebrated again and again, reaching a beautiful climax in Ch. 8, which we can read and reread with great benefit.

“If the Spirit of God who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the One who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through the same Spirit that dwells in you . . . . For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God . . . . When we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God [vs. 11, 15-16].
“We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; and not only the creation, but we our-selves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies . . . . Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words” [vs. 22-23, 26].

What REVERENCE we should feel for the presence of God in ourselves and in every human being! O Holy Spirit, the very One who energized and inspired Jesus in all his human thoughts, words and actions, You are now with us. You have poured into our hearts the love of God, the love that IS God. May the fruits of love, joy and peace radiate out from us to all the world. Pray the Pentecost Sequence

Pentecost Sequence

Come O Holy Spirit, come and from your celestial home, shed a ray of Light divine.
Come, O Father of the poor; come, O Giver of all gifts; come within our hearts now shine.

You, of comforters the best, You, the soul’s most welcome Guest, sweet refreshment here below.
In our labor, rest most sweet; grateful coolness in the heat; solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine, may that Light within us shine and our inmost being fill.
In your absence, we have naught, nothing good in deed or thought, nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew; on our dryness pour your dew; wash the stains of guilt away.
Bend the stubborn heart and will; melt the frozen, warm the chill, guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who adore and confess you evermore, in your seven-fold gifts descend.
Give them virtue’s sure reward, give them your salvation, Lord, give them joys that never end.
Amen. Alleluia.
