Novena to the Holy Spirit

Start Date: Friday, May 22, 2020

End Date: Saturday, May 30, 2020

Feast Day: Sunday, May 31, 2020

Follow the example of the original "Novena" ("9 days") when the Apostles prayed in the 9 days leading up to a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He promised He wouldn't leave them alone (John 14:16). Once the Apostles received the gifts of the Holy Spirit, their grief was turned into joy (John 16:20) and they boldly proclaimed the mighty acts of God to people of every language (Acts 2:4).

Go here to pray the novena to the Holy Spirit daily...



PENTECOST
Tongues of Fire and the Feast of Weeks


The word in Greek, pentecostē, literally means the 50th.
Check out this YouTube clip with Dr. Brant Pitre on Pentecost and the impact it would have had on the first century audience who would've seen or read about the actions of the Holy Spirit.

As COVID-19 restrictions begin easing in the state, Catholics in Western Washington should remain patient, stay vigilant and keep their focus on Jesus while awaiting the return of public Masses, Archbishop Paul D. Etienne said in a May 7 video message.

“Please keep the Lord a priority,” the archbishop said. “Please consciously be aware of his presence and how he is sustaining us during these days." Go here to watch video...

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY!

Please continue praying the rosary during these uncertain times as we continue to seek the intercession of Our Lady of Seattle for protection from this pandemic.

Prayer to Our Lady of Seattle

Holy Mary, we come before you as spiritual children in great need, seeking your intercession, and asking that your mantle of love surround us to console, protect, and lead us to your son Jesus. 

We entrust all of God's family, especially the church in Western Washington, into your immaculate hands. With your son Jesus' gentle power you can undo any knot in our church, and in the lives of believers who entrust themselves to your care. 

Today I especially entrust to you [mention request/Coronavirus here], and I ask that --through your intercession, and that of St. James, our guardian angels, and the faithful in our archdiocese -- we may be free from every spiritual and temporal ill, and be safely led to encounter your son's merciful, sacred heart. 

Our Lady of Seattle, Undoer of Knots pray for us!
