The Next Novena: The Original Novena!

holy spirit novenaWe’re excited to announce that the next novena we’re praying is the original novena!

Novenas are an ancient tradition that goes back to the days of the Apostles.

Jesus told His disciples to pray together after His ascension into heaven, so they went to an upper room along with the Blessed Virgin Mary, (Acts 1:14) and joined constantly in prayer for nine days.

These nine days of constant prayer by the Apostles at the direction of Jesus led up to Pentecost. This is when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples as “tongues of fire” (Acts 2:1-4). This pattern of 9 days of prayer is the basis of the novenas we pray today.

Thus, the novena is an imitation of the Lord’s command to the Apostles when they prayed for 9 days in anticipation of the coming of the Holy Spirit.

So maybe you can guess by now that the next novena we’re praying is The Pentecost Novena! 

The Holy Spirit plays a BIG part in our lives.

So, as we pray, ask the Holy Spirit for something concrete and measurable.

We will start praying on May 26th! 

Your can sign up to join us HERE.

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you!

P.S. The best way to initiate a better and deeper prayer life is through the giver of life Himself, the Holy Spirit. To do that, check out our e-book:

An Announcement: How You Can Pray More Rosaries

When the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in 1917, she said to them, “I am the Lady of the Rosary.”  Our Lady of Fatima expressed the desire that we would all pray the Rosary more often.

To help you do that, we’ve created these audio & video podcasts for each mystery of the Holy Rosary! 

Here’s the audio & video podcast for the Joyful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary. 

Here’s the audio & video podcast for the the Glorious Mysteries.

Here’s the audio & video podcast for the Luminous Mysteries. 

Here’s the audio & video podcast for the Sorrowful Mysteries. 

We hope these audio & video podcasts help you to pray the Rosary more often. 

The Next Novena: The Novena to Our Lady of Fatima!

We have a feeling this next novena will be very powerful :)

The next novena we will pray is the Novena to Our Lady of Fatima!

We will start praying on May 4th.

This novena will lead up to a particularly special feast day on May 13th. It’s the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, and it will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s first apparition in Fatima.

And there’s more: Francisco and Jacinta Marto, two of the three children whom Our Lady appeared to in Fatima, will be canonized that day.

You can read more about Our Lady of Fatima and those three children here:

That is also where you can sign up to join us. :)

We’re looking forward to praying this novena with you and for you!

God bless you!
