Pentecost Novena Day 9 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM 9. Saturday, Vigil of Pentecost

The Pauline letter to the Ephesians emphasizes again what it means to be called to be followers of Christ and vessels of the indwelling gift of the Spirit.

“I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit just as you were called to the one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, Who is above all and through all and in all” [Ephesians 4:1-6].

Ted Loder, in his book My Heart In My Mouth, writes
"that even in adversity, pain and suffering, even in the face of defeat and death, as in all else, the Spirit labors for our healing, resilience, and deliverance; leaving on us the eternal fingerprints of grace and glory!" And Fr. Anthony Oelrich, Pastor of Christ Church Newman Center in St. Cloud, MN, says: "By the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, our faces -- the faces of us who are called disciples of Jesus -- have become the face of God turned toward the world in mercy and healing love."

O Spirit of God, Spirit of Love and Compassion, You are the stirring in our hearts. Encourage us not to give up, but fill us anew with all the graces and gifts that God has promised us. Make us your witnesses unto the ends of the earth. 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.
