40 Days for Life-Fall Campaign A Novena to the Holy Spirit
Our intention for this novena is to beg God to transform the Napa Planned Parenthood from a place of great loneliness for mothers who enter,
and a place of pain and great trouble… into a House of Life.
Holy Spirit, Lord of light,
from thy clear celestial height,
Thy pure beaming radiance give.
Let us pray: O God who has taught the hearts of thy faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit; grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolations. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
Come thou father of the poor,
come with treasures which endure.
Come thou light of all that live.
Let us pray: O Holy Spirit, father of the poor, come fill my poverty-stricken soul out of the plenty of thy eternal riches. Warn me, I beg thee, of every opportunity in my daily round of duty, to lay up treasures where no thief approaches nor moth corrupts, that I may enjoy them together with thee forever. Amen.
Thou of all consolers best,
visiting the troubled breast,
does refreshing peace bestow.
Let us pray: O Divine Consoler, and of all comforters the best, to thee do we come in trouble and distress. Do thou, in the all-powerful name of Jesus, our Redeemer, and out of love for Mary, our sorrowful Mother and thy chaste spouse, come to our assistance and comfort us in all our trials and tribulations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Thou in toil art comfort sweet,
pleasant coolness in the heat,
solace in the midst of woe.
Let us pray: O God, who didst give the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, grant to thy people the effect of their pious prayers, that on those to whom thou hast given grace, thou may also bestow peace. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Light immortal, light divine,
visit thou these hearts of thine.
And our inmost being fill.
Let us pray: May the Paraclete, who proceeds from thee, enlighten our minds, we beseech thee, O Lord, and even as thy Son has promised, my He lead us into all truth. Amen.
If thou take the grace away,
nothing pure in man will stay.
All his good is turned to ill.
Let us pray: Send down, we beseech thee, O Lord, the Holy Spirit in His might, to the merciful purifying of our hearts and to our sure deliverance from all danger. Who lives and reigns world without end, Amen.
Heal our wounds, our strength renew.
On our dryness pour thy dew.
Wash the stains of guilt away.
Let us pray: Burn up, O Lord, our reins and our hearts in the fire of the Holy Spirit, that chaste of body and clean of heart, our service may be well pleasing to Thee, who lives and reigns world without end. Amen.
Bend the stubborn heart and will.
Melt the frozen, warm the chill.
Guide the steps that go astray.
Let us pray: Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, come into our hearts. Give to all peoples the brightness of thy light, that they may be well pleasing to Thee in unity of faith. Amen.
Thou on those who evermore,
confess and thee adore,
in thy sevenfold gift descend.
Give them comfort when they die.
Give them life with thee on high.
Give them joys which never end.
Let us pray: Send down upon us, we beseech thee, O Lord, the Holy Spirit, that, inspired and encouraged by Him, we may comply with the duties of our state, carry our daily crosses patiently, and grow daily in Christian perfection. Grant us, we beseech thee through the same Divine Spirit, the success of the Fall 2017 campaign of 40 Days for Life~Napa or what is most conducive to our eternal salvation and thy glory. Amen.
