novena time


I don't know why it took me so long to understand where the tradition of the Novena came from. Maybe it is because I became a Catholic first because of intellectual reasons, and my adoption into the culture was very slow. But a few years ago I counted the days between Ascension and Pentecost and came up with a novena. duh!
This year is very special for my family because our youngest daughter will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. Her class will be confirmed Friday 5/13, two days before Pentecost. Please hold her in your Novena Prayers, that she will be strengthened by the Holy Spirit. She is in the last stages of selecting her Confirmation saint, and has been doing a great job researching even some obscure ones, to find a special patron for her life.
Here is a link to the official prayers for this novena.
