A novena is made up of nine days of prayers for a special cause.  The Novena
in honor of the Holy Spirit is the most ancient of all Novenas.  It was the
first one ever prayed.  It recalls the period of nine days where Jesus sent
his apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit at
Pentecost. This wonderful Novena is addressed to the Holy Spirit and can be
a powerful way for us to prepare to receive the light, strength and courage
we need.
So, let's pray this wonderful Novena, beginning on the Friday after
Ascension Thursday, this year on the 26th of May, even when, like this year
in the United States, the celebration of Holy Thursday is transferred to the
next Sunday.  Come Holy Spirit, Come!

"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of
the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the
things of the Spirit.  To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the
mind on the Spirit is life and peace." ~Romans 8:5-6

We fail not so much when tragedy happens as we did before the happening, by
all the little things we may have done, but did not do. I can prepare for
the future by doing the right thing at the right time now. If a thing should
be done, I can deal with that thing today and get it righted with God before
I allow myself to undertake any new duty.  I can look upon myself as
performing God's errands and then coming back to God to tell God in quiet
communion that the message has been delivered or the task done.

I pray that I may seek no credit for the result so f what I do.  I pray that
I may leave the outcome of my actions to God.

Helen-Ann asks prayers for a special intention. Sue asks for prayers for her
friend who is fighting her second bout with cancer. Peter, a member from NY,
asks prayers for his son who is in depression since his wife left him. Lee
asks for prayers for her parish priests, who work so hard for all of us.
Please pray for two recently deceased priests of our Diocese, and of our
Director of Family life who has died, and for his family.

Joan requests prayers for her son, that he will find good employment very
soon. Pat asks prayers for his sister-in-law who is recovering from surgery.
Anna  requests prayers for her boyfriend who has been diagnosed as suffering
from a hiatus hernia, that God grants him a speedy recovery. A  member
requests prayers for herself to heal and go on with life, thereby ending a
destructive relationship.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
