Novena of the Holy Spirit
You are invited with your fellow parishioners of Our Lady of Angels to join in the ancient practice of Novena to the Holy Spirit.
From the nine days leading to Pentecost, 2000 years ago when the Apostles waited and prayed with the Virgin Mary in the upper room until the present day, the Church as taken these novena days to call upon and wait upon the Holy Spirit to come again as on the day of Pentecost. The soul animates the body, the Spirit of God animates the Body of Christ. If you are a member in the Body of Christ then your life is meant to be animated by the power of the Holy Spirit. The saints did not become holy by their own willpower, they became holy by the dynamism of the Holy Spirit. These 9 days are designed by Jesus Christ Himself, and mandated by Holy Mother Church in the words of pope, St. Leo XIII on May 9, 1897. You can pray this with us from May 11-19, in the OLA adoration chapel starting this Friday night from 7:30-8:15pm. To do so we ask that you download on your smart phone or print out a copy of this novena (click here). If you are unable to join in the chapel itself each day you can use this novena to pray with us wherever you are. May God bless you abundantly!
