Novena to the Holy Spirit

The first novena took place between the Ascension of Jesus (Ascension Thursday) and the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Pentecost).

Begin this powerful prayer tomorrow, on the Feast of the Ascension. It needn't be elaborate. It needn't be public. (Although it certainly could be.)

It could be as simple as praying The Lord's Prayer, an Ave, a Glory Be, and ending with the simple request: "Come, Holy Ghost!"

Veni Sancte Spiritus!
