Today, pro-life people around the world are invited to begin a special Novena to the Holy Spirit, Lord and Giver of Life. At www.priestsforlife.org you will be able to sign up for this novena and download the prayer.
The period of time between the Ascension and Pentecost was the original novena, when the disciples prayed at Jesus’ instruction that they would be clothed with power from on high.
That Holy Spirit, the Advocate, made them bold advocates for the Gospel. The same boldness is needed by us as we announce the sanctity of life and denounce the many attacks on life, beginning with abortion and euthanasia.
Let us pray in this novena that he will make us bold advocates for the unborn and all the vulnerable.
