Lovingly called the ‘original’ novena, we will pray as the Blessed Mother and apostles did,
“When they entered the city they went to the upper room where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.” (Acts 1:13-14)
No upper room is required as your living room, bedroom, or outside on the front porch will do just fine.
We all know we need another outpouring of the Holy Spirit – we need healing, direction and grace. And for many of us, we are praying especially that Pentecost will be our return to CHURCH!
