St Alphonsus Maria de Liguori's Novena to the Holy Spirit
In these troubled times, why not take time to prepare for Pentecost by praying St Alphonsus' novena to the Holy Spirit. What better way to pray for the needs of the world and of the Church at this time?
Click here for the full text of the Novena, updated and re-edited for our times by Fr Ronald McAinsh CSsR.
The Novena starts on Friday 22nd May, and finishes on the Vigil of the Feast, Saturday 30th May. If you start late, just catch up gently.
Set aside a regular time each day to pray the Novena. This will make it easier for you to complete it.
Why not choose a special intention for your Novena, such as the cessation of the current pandemic? Or, if praying with your household, bring all your intentions into the Novena each day.
We wish you a joyful Pentecost. Please be assured of our continued prayers for you and your families.
