In compliance with the request made by Our Lord Jesus Christ to Luz de Maria on April 22, 2017:
“TO MY PEOPLE I WILL GIVE THE GRACE OF FIRMNESS IN THE FAITH if nine days before Pentecost you pray and entrust yourselves to Me every day of this Novena, with body, soul and spirit unified in love, with dedication, surrender, with awareness and having turned away from what is worldly. Not only is the requirement to remain in that state of peace, grace and inner love those nine days, but the rest of your lives.”
The People of God are invited to offer to the Holy Spirit the Novena of their preference. It begins on the 31st of May, and ends on the 8th of June, since Pentecost Sunday falls on the 9th of June, 2019.
We suggest the following Novena to the Holy Spirit given by Our Lord Jesus Christ to Luz de María on the 17th of January, 2011.
PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
Holy Spirit, Love of the Father and of the Son, come, fill up this child of Yours with Your gifts. Divine Splendor, Sacred Fire, Crystal Spring of clean fraternity. Life of Christians, staff of the helpless, light in the darkness, warmth in the cold, raise my dormant being, raise my soul towards You.
Come Holy Spirit, give me Your Wisdom to act correctly.
Give me holy intelligence, to attract my brothers and sisters, that I may not feel superior to my peers, but the smallest one so that You surge with power.
Come, take my mind and renew it; that I may be an echo of Your voice and that I may advise in the Divine Will, not in mine. Give me the strength to not stumble and be able to resist, seeing you, be able to resist; spellbound by Your strength, may I be a faithful apostle. Of Your science oh Divine Spirit, may I be a reflection, may I seek Your glory, drive the worldly away from me. Penetrate the depths of my heart and graft in it Your very mercy that I may love with Your very love. Carry out in me the miracle of the fear of God; give me a thirst for souls, so that without seeing who, I labor for the Kingdom.
Oh Holy Spirit, infuse in me the gift of true love. Thank you Holy Divine Spirit, live in me fully, that aware of my need, with complete freedom I call you to take possession of my life. Thank you oh Divine Goodness, Merciful Ruler, Sacred Fire.
† With Imprimatur, Monsignor José Oscar Barahona Castillo, Bishop Emeritus of San Vicente, El Salvador, C.A.
