Reminder - Novena to the Holy Spirit for Pentecost Starts Tomorrow

Picture source

Just wanted to remind you that not only is tomorrow the First Friday of June, the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, it is also the first day of the the Novena to the Holy Spirit. The entire nine day novena can be found at EWTN.

The novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas since it was first made at the direction of Our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light and strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.
