A novena with a prayer for each day requesting one of the Gifts of the Holy Ghost, concluding on the ninth day with a prayer to receive them through the intercession of Mary, His cherished Spouse. Devotional, instructive, inspirational!
Our Lord laid the foundations of His Church during His public life, and after His Resurrection He gave it the powers necessary for its mission. It was by the Holy Ghost that the Apostles were to be trained and endued with strength from on High. At Pentecost we celebrate the first manifestation of the Holy Ghost among our Lord’s disciples and the foundation of the Church itself.
