Pentecost Novena Begins Tomorrorrow

Alright, I know it isn't quite, at least in this sceptred isle, unless of course you follow, in this case, the scripturally more accurate older calendar.

We have a Ususus Antiquior Missa Cantata at 7pm here.

I am beginning a Pentecost Novena, the mother of all Novenas. The nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost are the original model for all Novenas, I met the son of one of our recussant families recently they gave up the faith after years of persecution just as things were becoming easier in the early 19th century, it is my whim, and God's will, he should be a Catholic.
I am also praying for a few personal and parish things.

Ora Pro Invicem
If you want to enter an intention in the combox before the end of tomorrow let us pray for one another's intentions, the can be Anonymous but the combox will close beforse Compline tomorrow and I expect to hear on a post Pentecost post whether intention have been answered, or not.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

or in the Church's tongue
Veni, Sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium: et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.

V. Emitte Spiritum tuum, et creabuntur.
R. Et renovabis faciem terrae.

Oremus. Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere; et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.

Hi Father ty so much for the opportunity to make a petition through your blog. First and most I beg you to pray for the unborn victims of abortion, their mother and spevially the medical personel that cooperates and condomes them. Also appreciate your prayer for me that the Lord give me wisdom to identify his will, his purpose for me and that I have the courage to fulfill it

Thank-you for this opportunity Father. To be "full of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 7:55) as was my Confirmation Saint, Stephen... that would be my particular request.

Thank-you again Fr.

I pray that I have the resources necessary to tie up my loose ends and go try out my vocation. I pray that I have the grace of perserverance while there. I pray for a true spirit of detachment from the world before I go. I pray for the re/conversion of my parents and siblings to the traditional practice of the faith.

Special private intention plus the hope that a non-catholic couple I know will be able to conceive a child according to God's law.
