The Novena begins today, and will continue once a day ending a week from tomorrow.
What I will do is today write a general prayer for the Novena, and then each day come up with a prayer for each of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit (Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety and Fear of the Lord). Since that would only give me 8, I decided to add a final request for the gift of sobriety. Although not one of the gifts, it would make a fitting conclusion for this Novena.
Also, in case this blogpost looks any different from previous ones, I am using a new blog editor, called “ScribeFire”. It is an add-on or extension for my Firefox browser. I no longer have to actually login to the Blogger site to post to SoberCatholic or the Four Last Things. Neat!
