Novena to the Holy Spirit – Day 8 (May 18)

Opening Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of Your faithful,
and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit, and they shall be created,
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of Your faithful,
grant that by that same Holy Spirit,
we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Sequence

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away.

Bend the stubborn heart and will.
Melt the frozen, warm the chill.
Guide the steps that go astray.

Scripture Passage

Verse

V: Renew your wonders in the Church of our day and in
each one of us, as by a new Pentecost.
Increase in us the virtues of Faith, Hope and Love, we pray to the Lord.

Closing Prayer

Come Holy Spirit,
Renew your wonders in this our day,
as by a new Pentecost.
Grant to your Church that,
being of one mind and steadfast in prayer
with Mary, the Mother of Jesus,
and following the lead of the successors
of Saint Peter and the Apostles, it may
advance the reign of our Divine Savior,
the reign of truth and justice, the reign of
love and peace. Amen.


Prayer for Building of New Church

Spirit of the Living God,
Breath of Life and Fire of Love:

Be our help and our guide
as we seek to know the Father’s Will.
Give us wisdom and right judgment
as Stewards of your creation.

Inspire our hearts and strengthen our will
to raise up for your glory a holy place
where the splendor of your presence
may heal, purify, restore,
and give new life to the church
gathered in your name.

With the faith planted in our hearts,
and by the hope given to us
by Christ our Lord,
the living stones of our lives
will raise up with your help
a place of awesome beauty.

Where the broken may be healed and find peace
Strangers be welcomed with joy
The Thirsty refreshed at the well of your grace
And the hungry be fed on the bread of life.

Come Holy Spirit!

Espíritu del Dios Viviente,
Aliento de Vida Y Fuego del Amor:

Se nuestra ayuda y nuestro guía
cuando buscamos saber la voluntad del Padre.
Danos sabiduría y juicio correcto
como mayordomos de su creación.

Inspira nuestros corazones
y fortalecer nuestra voluntad
para levantar un lugar sagrado para tu gloria
donde el esplendor de tu presencia
puede sanar, purificar, restaurar
y dar nueva vida a la iglesia
reunidos en tu nombre.

Con la fe plantada en nuestros corazones,
y por la esperanza dada a nosotros
por Cristo nuestro Señor,
las piedras vivas de nuestras vidas
se levantarán con tu ayuda
un lugar de increíble belleza

Donde los quebrados puedan ser sanados
y encontrar la paz
Los extraños ser recibidos con alegría
Los sedientos puedan ser refrescaos en el pozo
de tu gracia
Y los hambrientos sean alimentados
con el pan de vida.

Ven Espíritu Santo!
