Today is the ninth and final day of the Novena for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, called the Original Novena because the apostles prayed for the Holy Spirit for 9 days. Today we focus on the fruits of the Holy Spirit as we prepare for tomorrow's glorious celebration on Pentecost Sunday. We remember not only the descent of the Holy Spirit on the apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary but also the foundation of the Church. For it was the Descent of the Holy Spirit that founded the Church and set the disciples out as apostles to preach the Gospel to the whole world.
