Act of Oblation to the Holy Spirit
ON MY KNEES 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.” Amen. (After a prayer by Cardinal Newman)
Prayer for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, did promise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul, the work of Your grace and Your love. Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal, the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Your divine truth, the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining heaven, the Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with You and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation, the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints, the Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable, and the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God and may dread in any way to displease Him. Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples and animate me in all things with Your Spirit. Amen

The full text for the nine days: Novena to the Holy Spirit
a novena of the holy spirit by St Alphonsus Liguori
I enjoyed your website. Even though I am Baptist I am a Christian. The content was very original & the videos stunning. However, the videos that contained things to read, I never got to read it all. They would change before I got to the end. I would suggest a little more time in the reading of these. I consider myself to be a fast reader, but I couldn’t keep up.
I was very drawn into the videos even though the content was equally as well.
This is a very informative website with very astounding videos I couldn’t look away from.
Keep up the good work & we’ll all keep praying our world will get better.
Peace be with you, your family and your community!
May this holy feast of Pentecost indeed renew us all so we dare to proclaim His Resurrection! What a joy! And it is ours. It is the heart of our faith!
Thank you for your heartfelt and beautiful testimony….
As for the video’s with text; yes, our dimming eyes do not follow any more. Hence I always post the text in pdf… Just click it, and there is the beautiful novena prayer that goes back to the apostolic time. That is the time where the apostles were still alive.
Thank you for telling me you enjoyed my website. A humble contribution to the mother whose name I was given long ago…. The mother of all with the words of Jesus himself “see there your mother” to his most beloved disciple on the cross.
Jesus has several commands when it comes to prayer. One to pray together, as you so rightful said. 🙂
This week I celebrate 50 years of holy confirmation. A seed that was planted so long ago and that I hope has grown into a fruitful tree. It has given me so much things to be thankful for… so much joy. One of them being our salvation, no matter our culture, language, race or communities… : ‘believe in Me and I will sent you a Helper who will teach you all’. What a promise. Yes! ‘Come Holy Spirit , enlighten the hearts of all the faithtful, poor the fire of Your love in their hearts and it shall Enlighten the earth…’
Please keep visiting.
Interesting, quite interesting. The Holy Spirit works in many different ways–I am wondering if you have ever prayed to the Holy Spirit for wisdom and guidance in your Wealthy Affiliate training and endeavors. We should all do that more often. Might have been the Holy Spirit that guided me to Wealthy Affiliate in the first place.
so true Paul… my mother learned me to love the Holy Spirit at work in all beings… her example teached me to invoke guidance, strenght and Light. The novena is a powerfull prayer… unknown by many… and many confuse the manifestations of the Holy Spirit (like speaking in tongues) with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
And Mary, the mother of Jesus, shadowed by the Holy Spirit. I will add a downloadable text of the novena
