Today, the 41st day of easter, the day after the great feast of Ascension starts our preparation for another great feast, the Pentecost. Feast days have great graces associated with them. Pentecost is a great time to ask for the gifts and fruits of the spirit. Priest at our local church encouraged us all to start the novena today to prepare for Pentecost. So let’s prepare together for this feast by praying the novena for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
