Praying with Mary… Novena day two

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the earth. Acts 1 : 8

Dear children! Today I invite you to open yourselves to God by means of prayer so the Holy Spirit may begin to work miracles in you and through you. I am with you and I intercede before God for each one of you because, dear children, each one of you is important in my plan of salvation. I invite you to be carriers of good and peace. God can give you peace only if you convert and pray. Therefore, my dear little children, pray, pray, pray and do that which the Holy Spirit inspires you. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, May 25, 1993

• The Virgin Mary calls us to pray with her to the Holy Spirit in order for us to draw strength and force from above, to be wrapped in the power coming from God. Together with the apostles she was perseverant in her prayer waiting for Jesus’ promise – the Holy Spirit. She is the spouse of the Holy Spirit and full of mercy. She is the one who knows best the mysterious power of the Holy Spirit and therefore knows how much we still need his strength today. We received the Holy Spirit in the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, and we have heard that he exists. And yet, it seems as if all other spirits are around us but the Holy Spirit. That is why Our Lady’s call is serious and so much needed. The only way towards the experience of the strength of the Holy Spirit is prayer. Fr Ljubo Kurtović OFM

Dear Mother Mary, thank you for inviting us to open our hearts to God by means of prayer so that the Holy Spirit may begin to work miracles in us and through us. Thank you for being with us and interceding for each one of us before God. Thank you for reminding us of our importance in helping to realise your plan of salvation. We accept your invitation to be carriers of good and peace, knowing that we can only receive God’s peace if we convert and pray. And so, inspired by your words and the Holy Spirit we promise to pray, pray, pray and respond to your call. Amen
