Pray with us the Novena to the Holy Spirit

How does sorrow turn to joy, water turn to wine, wine turn to the precious Blood of the Lamb?  The Holy Spirit.

Friday, May 10th to Saturday, May 18th, the whole Church with the holy Apostles and Our Lady, prays a novena to ask for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church and upon all mankind.
