Novena to the Holy Spirit

Print Version

Thou of all Consolers best,
Visiting the troubled breast,
Dost refreshing peace bestow.

The Gift of Piety

The gift of Piety begets
in our hearts a filial affection
for God as our most loving Father.

It inspires us to love
and respect for His sake
persons and things
consecrated to Him,
as well as those
who are vested
with His authority,
His Blessed Mother
and the Saints,
the Church and its visible Head,
our parents and superiors,
our country and its rulers.

He who is filled
with the gift of Piety
finds the practice of his religion,
not a burdensome duty,
but a delightful service.
Where there is love,
there is no labor.


Come, O Blessed Spirit of Piety,
possess my heart.

Enkindle therein
such a love for God,
that I may find satisfaction
only in His service,
and for His sake
lovingly submit to all
legitimate authority.

Our Father and Hail Mary ONCE.
Glory be to the Father SEVEN TIMES.

Act of Oblation to the Holy Spirit
for the Seven Gifts


before the great cloud of heavenly witnesses,
I offer myself body and soul to Thee,
eternal Spirit of God.

I adore the brightness of Thy purity,
the unerring keenness of Thy justice
and the might of Thy love.

Thou art the strength and light of my soul.

In Thee I live and move and have my being.

I desire never to grieve Thee
by unfaithfulness to grace,
and I pray with all my heart to be kept
from the smallest sin against Thee.

Make me faithful in every thought,
and grant that I may always listen to Thy voice,
watch for Thy light,
and follow Thy gracious inspirations.

I cling to Thee and give myself to Thee,
and I ask Thee by Thy compassion
to watch over me in my weakness.
Holding the pierced feet of Jesus,
looking at His five Wounds,
trusting in His Precious Blood
and adoring His opened side
and stricken Heart,
I implore Thee, adorable Spirit,
Helper of my infirmity,
so to keep me in Thy grace
that I may never sin against Thee
with the sin which Thou wilt not forgive.

Grant to me the grace, O Holy Spirit,
Spirit of the Father and of the Son,
to say to Thee always and everywhere,
"Speak, Lord, for Thy servant hears."
(After a prayer by Cardinal Newman)
