Novena to the Holy Spirit



            Come Holy Spirit, pour forth on our entire family of Love Crucified, as well as our personal family, the source of Your grace, and enkindle a new Pentecost in Your Church! Come down upon Your bishops, Your priests, your seminarians, your religious, Your faithful and upon those who do not believe, upon the most hardened of sinners, and finally, upon each one of us!  Come down upon all the people of the world, upon all races, and upon every class and category of people!

            Stir us with Your divine breath, purify us of all our sins, and free us from all deceit and evil!  Inflame us with Your fire; grant that we may burn and be consumed in Your love! Teach us to understand that God is everything-all our happiness and joy, our present, our future and our eternity are in His hands.  Come Holy Spirit and transform us, save us, reconcile us, unite us and consecrate us to Yourself!

            Teach us to belong completely to Christ, to be one with Love Crucified, and to belong totally to God! This we ask through the intercession and under the guidance and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Your Immaculate Spouse, Mother of Jesus and our Mother! Amen.


            Dear Heavenly Mother, through the Power of the Holy Spirit, we ask for your intercession for ______ Please take our prayers, fasting and sacrifices and present them to your son, and with the grace afforded to You, perfect our offerings that we may be granted beyond every imaginable expectation all that we desire for the conversion of hearts, for the protection of our family and mission.

            We pray Mary, for the Holy Spirit to invade our nation and the whole world, igniting both the hearts of Christians and unbelievers alike. That the spark of grace in each soul will combust into a mighty flame that will create such a fire of conversion that it will quickly spread throughout our land beginning here in our domestic churches.  We pray this especially for our bishops, and the priests, sisters, deacons, seminarians and faithful of our own diocese.

            We pray for the presence of tens of thousands of angels to begin filling our homes, our parishes, our cities, our countries, every single one of our activities, so that all may be surrounded with the grace of heaven, and that Satan will find no entrance to bring his evil intentions. Most especially, we pray that there will be no pride in our own hearts for Satan to work, only the true humility of your heart and the heart of Jesus.

            Lastly, we pray for each member of our family, including every child down to the youngest members in their mother’s womb, to have a profound experience with the Holy Spirit, so that our hearts will be made pure, and the new Pentecost would descend down upon each one of us, uniting us as one.

            All for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, all through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, all in union with Saint Joseph.

“Jesus, Savior of all mankind, save them, save them!”


Jesus to Conchita:

"There exists a hidden treasure, a wealth remaining unexploited and in no way appreciated at its true worth, which is nevertheless that which is the greatest in heaven and on earth: the Holy Spirit. The world of souls itself does not know Him as it should. He is the Light of intellects and the Fire which enkindles hearts.

If there is indifference, coldness, weakness, and so many other evils which afflict the spiritual world and even My Church, it is because recourse is not had to the Holy Spirit.

His mission in heaven, His Life, His Being, is Love. On earth, His mission consists in leading souls toward this hearth of Love which is God. With Him, there is possessed all that can be desired.

-If there is sadness, it is because recourse is not had to this divine Consoler, to Him who is perfect spiritual joy.
-If there is weakness, it is because there is no reliance on Him who is invincible Might.
-If there are errors, it is because of disregard for Him who is Light.
Faith is extinguished through the absence of the Holy Spirit.

In each heart and in the whole Church, there is not rendered the Holy Spirit that which is due to Him. Most of the evils that are deplored in the Church and in the field of souls comes from not according to the Holy Spirit the primacy which I have given to this Third Person of the Trinity who has taken so active a part in the Incarnation of the Word and in the founding of the Church. He is loved lukewarmly, invoked without fervor and in many hearts, even among my own, not even called to mind. All this deeply wounds My Heart.

It is time that the Holy Spirit reign. But it is necessary that He reigns, here, right close, in each soul and in each heart, in all the structures of My Church. The day on which there will flow in each pastor, in each priest, like an inner blood, the Holy Spirit, then will be renewed the theological virtues, now languishing, even in the ministers of My Church, due to the absence of the Holy Spirit. Then the world will change, for all the evils deplored today have their cause in the remoteness of the Holy Spirit, the sole remedy. Let the ministers of my Church react, through the medium of the Holy Spirit, and the whole world of souls will be divinized. He is the axis around which revolve the virtues. There is no virtue without the Holy Spirit.

The decisive impulse for raising up My Church from the state of prostration in which she lies, consists in reviving the cult of the Holy Spirit. Let His place be given Him, that is, the first in intellects and wills! No one will be lacking anything with this heavenly wealth. The Father and I, the Word, We desire an ardent and vitalizing renewal of His reign in the Church. May the Holy Spirit reign in souls, and the Word will be known and honored, the Cross taking on a new force in the souls spiritualized by divine Love. To the extent the Holy Spirit will reign, sensuality, which today invades the earth, will disappear.

The Cross will never take root unless beforehand the soil is made ready by the Holy Spirit. That is why He appeared to you first even before the vision of the Cross. It is because of this He is at the summit of the Cross of the Apostolate. One of the main fruits of the mystical incarnation is the reign of the Holy Spirit which must bring about the disappearance of materialism" (Diary, Feb. 19, 1911).

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you. (John 14:16-17)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)


'He is the source of divine grace and He never remains inactive. Day and night, He labors in souls who give themselves to Me, and these souls constantly advance in virtues. But when souls resist or are indifferent, then I withdraw since My graces are of too great a price to be wasted on them. The work of the Holy Spirit in souls is most delicate, and the soul who despises it is quite culpable… If it does not respond to My inspirations, to what I demand of it, I withdraw. There are some souls which it is necessary to push along at each step, others which run and fly. According to the measure of their correspondence with grace, they advance constantly rising to the degree I have destined for them. Be vigilant, hear My voice. You know quite well that for hearing me it is necessary to keep your ears open… A total renunciation of yourself and a constant spirit of sacrifice. (Letter to Msgr. Leopoldo Ruiz y Flores, June 23, 1904).

Jesus answered and said to him, "Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. (John (NAB) 14:23)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer(daily)


"Some souls think that the Holy Spirit is very far away, far, far up above. Actually, He is, we might say, the divine Person who is most closely present to the creature. He accompanies him everywhere. He penetrates him with Himself, He calls him, He protects him. He makes of him His living temple. He defends him. He helps him. He guards him from all his enemies. He is closer to him than his own soul. All the good a soul accomplishes, it carries out under His inspiration, in His light, by His grace and His help. And yet He is not invoked, He is not thanked for His direct and intimate action in each soul. If you invoke the Father, if you love Him, it is through the Holy Spirit. If you love Me ardently, if you know Me, if you serve Me, if you imitate Me, if you make yourself but one with My wishes and with My heart, it is through the Holy Spirit.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  (1Corinthians (NAB) 6:19)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer(daily)


"He is considered inaccessible and He actually is but there is nothing that exists nearer, more helpful to the creature in his misery than this being of a supreme transcendence, this most Holy Spirit who reflects and who constitutes one and the same holiness with the Father and the Son. Centuries have passed and He remains ever the principle of all things. He engraves His mark on souls and His sign on the priest. He communicates the light of faith and all the virtues. He irrigates and fertilizes the whole field of the Church.

Despite this, He is not appreciated, He is not known, He is not thanked for His perpetually sanctifying action. If the world is ungrateful to Me, how much more so toward the Holy Spirit! Here is why I want His glory to be shown to the end of time… One of the cruelest interior sufferings for My Heart was this ingratitude of all times, this worship of idols of other times, and today man's self-worship, forgetful of the Holy Spirit. In these latter days sensuality has set up its reign in the world. This sensual life obscures and extinguishes the light of faith in souls. That is why more than ever, it is necessary that the Holy Spirit come to destroy and annihilate Satan who under this form penetrates even the Church" (Diary, Jan. 26, 1915).

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts (NAB) 1)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)


"Every movement of My soul has been inspired and carried out under the movement of the Holy Spirit. He is who animates My faculties, My senses, My will, holding them in His possession for the glory of the Father to whom I return everything… The Holy Spirit loves My humanity with an incomparable predilection… If you only knew with what delicacy, with what tenderness, and with what splendor the Holy Spirit adorns My soul, My faculties, My feelings, My body and My heart! Even more than a mother He is all love. He displayed all His might, all His riches to form Me in Mary's womb, as a perfect model of all that is beautiful, pure and holy. All the riches and treasures which adorn My Heart, I owe to the Holy Spirit.

I do not like devotion to My Heart, to be regarded as an end, but only as a means of being raised up to My Divinity, as a step for reaching the Holy Spirit since it is He who created, formed and enriched My human heart, who poured on it all the delights of His love as well as all the interior sufferings and the manner of undergoing universal expiation for the pardon of culpable mankind.

The heart of man and his body had sinned. There was need of another heart and another body united to the power of a God to give satisfaction to this Other who is God. This plan, this action, this salvific purpose, glorifying my humanity and for the salvation of the world, are owed to the Holy Spirit" (Diary, Jan. 29, 1915).

Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim. (Acts (NAB) 2)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)


"The Holy Spirit took an extremely active part in the carrying out of the eternal plan of Redemption. Then, when the time came, He carried out the work of the Incarnation, after having made it clear to the prophets, announcing it to them before hand. During My life it was He who sustained me, He who presented to My Father My infinite expiation and touched souls, drawing them to the Truth which I am. I had promised to send Him and I have done so, for, in each of His acts, in the sacraments and His infallible action, the Holy Spirit holds in My Church the first place" (Diary, Jan. 28, 1915).

Peter (said) to them, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  (Acts (NAB) 2)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)


"I am her pilot and that is why centuries will pass and My Church will reach the shores of heaven as pure, as holy, as maternal, as filled with love and charity as when she came from my hands. What matter betrayals and persecutions, even on the part of her own (the most painful), She will majestically sail on through the myriads of tempests which served, serve and will serve but to render her more wondrous and glorious.

"Who can prevail against God? Generations pass, persecutions cease, schisms are mended, only My Church goes on as beautiful and pure, holy and immutable as when she came from my hands, borne by love which does not change for it is divine, thanks to the unity she possesses in herself, impregnated by love and diffusing only love.

"Yet the time has come to exalt the Holy Spirit in the world. He is the soul of this Beloved Church. This divine Person diffuses Himself prodigally in every act of the Church. I desire that this last epoch be consecrated in a very special way to this Holy Spirit who ever operates out of love. He guided the Church from her very beginnings, by the three acts of humble love in Peter. I desire that in these latter days this holy love inflame all hearts but most of all the hearts of the Pope and My priests. It is his turn, it is his epoch, it is the triumph of love in my Church, in the whole universe. To obtain this, I again ask that the world be consecrated in a very special way to the Holy Spirit, beginning with all the members of the Church, to this third Person of the Trinity. Since the Spirit binds and unites the Trinity itself and makes God God (For God is love), and the Holy Spirit is the Person of Love (Love itself)… That is why the Holy Spirit is the soul, the great divine force, the energy, the heart, the heartbeat of the Church of God" (Diary, March 2, 1928).

No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: 'It will come to pass in the last days,' God says, 'that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams.18 Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy.19 And I will work wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below: blood, fire, and a cloud of smoke.20 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and splendid day of the Lord,21 and it shall be that everyone shall be saved who calls on the name of the Lord.' (Acts (NAB) 2)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)


"I will tell you a very deep secret. Graces accumulate upon My Church as well as the treasures, the riches, the most fertile sources of the merits of the Incarnate Word, but each day, men, even those who are called Mine, close the doors to the Holy Spirit. Satan determines the Church through the weakness and dissipation of those who should be the guardians of the sanctuary. Souls languish through want of directors possessed by the Holy Spirit.

My Church, so beautiful and rich, must leave her treasures locked up for she does not know to whom to distribute them. The saddest thing is that these infinite treasures of grace I bought at the price of My Blood, remain inactive in My Church, due to want of laborers who are holy. They understand in their own way the spiritual life and, due to lack of profound studies in this matter, due to ignorance and negligence they leave unachieved the designs of God on a great number of souls.

"My Heart is saddened because my ministers are sleeping. On many occasions, they are the first to conform themselves to superficial piety. They do not make the Cross enter souls, and still less do they reveal to them the Holy Spirit. I tell you again in greatest confidence that routine has deeply penetrated the sanctuary. This devotion in spirit and in truth is completely extinguished in numerous communities.

May my ministers react through the Holy Spirit, may they appreciate to the full the interior life! May they possess it themselves and communicate it through the Holy Spirit! Then the Church will reflourish in her prime vigor. There is lacking in My Church the stamina of the Holy Spirit, it is wanting in seminarians and in members of the clergy. Consequently it is wanting in souls who live and are nourished by this vital essential, called to communicate to them the life of grace. (Diary, Feb. 21, 1911)

"I want a living, palpitating, clear and powerful reaction of the clergy through the Holy Spirit. A priest no longer belongs to himself. He is another Me and he must be all to all, but first of all by sanctifying himself, for no one can give what he does not have and only the Sanctifier can sanctify. So then, if he wants to be holy - as it is imperious he must - he must be possessed, impregnated by the Holy Spirit, since if the Holy Spirit is indispensable for the life of any soul whatsoever, for the soul of priests He must be their breath and very life. If priests are Jesus, should they not have the Spirit of Jesus? And this Spirit, is he not the Holy Spirit?" (Diary, Oct. 9, 1927).

To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit; 10 to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to another discernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes. (1Corinthians (NAB) 12)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer(daily)


"On sending to the world a new Pentecost, I want it inflamed, purified, illuminated, and

purified by the light and fire of the Holy Spirit. The last stage of the world must be marked very specially by the effusion of the Holy Spirit. He must reign in hearts and in the entire world, not so much for the glory of His Person as for making the Father loved and bearing testimony of Me, although His glory is that of the whole Trinity" (Diary, Jan. 26, 916).

"Tell the Pope that it is My will that in the whole Christian world the Holy Spirit be implored to bring peace and His reign into hearts. Only this Holy Spirit will be able to renew the face of the earth. He will bring light, union and charity to hearts. The world is foundering because it rejects the Holy Spirit, and all the evils which afflict it have therein their origin. The remedy is found in Him. He is the Consoler, the author of all grace, the bond of union between the Father and the Son and the supreme conciliator since He is charity, uncreated and eternal Love. May the whole world have recourse to this Holy Spirit since the day of His reign has arrived. This last stage of the world belongs very specially to Him that He be honored and exalted. May the Church preach Him, may souls love Him, may the whole world be consecrated to Him, and peace will come along with a moral and spiritual reaction, greater than the evil by which the world is tormented. May all at once this Holy Spirit begin to be called on with prayers, penances and tears, with the ardent desire of His coming. He will come, I will send Him again clearly manifest in His effects, which will astonish the world and impel the Church to holiness" (Diary, Sept. 27, 1918).

 "Ask for this renewal, this new Pentecost, for My Church has need of priests sanctified by the Holy Spirit. The world is foundering in the abyss since it lacks priests who will help it from falling in; priests who bear the light to shine on the paths of good; pure priests to pull out of the mud so many hearts; priests afire who will fill the entire universe with divine love. Ask, supplicate heaven, that all may be restored in Me by the Holy Spirit" (Diary, Nov. 1, 1927).

"I want to return to the world in My priests. I want to renew the world of souls by making Myself seen in My priests. I want to give a might impulse to My Church infusing in her, as it were, a new Pentecost, the Holy Spirit, in My priests" (Diary, Jan. 5, 1928).

"To obtain what I ask, every priest must make a consecration to the Holy Spirit, asking Him, through Mary's intercession, to come to them as it were in a new Pentecost, to purify them, to fill them with love, possess them, unify them, sanctify them and transform them into Me" (Diary, Jan. 25, 1928).

 "One day not too far away, at the center of My Church, at Saint Peter's there will take place the consecration of the world to the Holy Spirit, and the graces of this Divine Spirit, will be showered on the blessed Pope who will make it.

"It is My desire that the universe be consecrated to the Divine Spirit that He may spread Himself over the earth in a new Pentecost." (Diary, March 11, 1928)

Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance,4 and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope,5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us. (Romans (NAB) 5)

            Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the following final prayer (daily)

(To be recited daily during the novena)


On my knees before the great multitude of Heavenly witnesses, I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice and the might of Your love. You are the strength and light of my soul. In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace, and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You.

Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations. I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You, by Your compassion, to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus, and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood, and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart, I implore you, adorable Spirit, helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in your grace that I may never sin against you. Give me grace, 0 Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son, to say to you always and everywhere, "Speak Lord, for Your Servant is listening." Amen


O Lord Jesus Christ, Who before ascending into Heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your apostles and disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul the work of Your grace and Your love.

Grant me the
-Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal,
-The Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of your divine truth,
-The Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining heaven,
-The Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with You and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,
-The Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,
-The Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amicable,
-The Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence toward God and may dread in any way to displease Him.

Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples and animate me in all things with Your Spirit. Amen.
