Day Two of the Novena

Day Two: The Holy Spirit Changes Chaos into Cosmos

From the Word of God
Psalm 33

Ring out your joy to the LORD, O you just;
for praise is fitting for loyal hearts.

Give thanks to the LORD upon the harp,
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.
O sing him a song that is new,
play loudly, with all your skill.

For the word of the LORD is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The LORD loves justice and right
and fills the earth with his love.

By his word the heavens were made,
by the breath of his mouth all the stars.
He collects the waves of the ocean;
he stores up the depths of the sea.

Let all the earth fear the LORD
all who live in the world revere him.
He spoke; and it came to be.
He commanded; it sprang into being.

He frustrates the designs of the nations,
he defeats the plans of the peoples.
His own designs shall stand for ever,
the plans of his heart from age to age.

They are happy, whose God is the LORD,
the people he has chosen as his own.
From the heavens the LORD looks forth,
he sees all the children of men.

From the place where he dwells he gazes
on all the dwellers on the earth;
he who shapes the hearts of them all;
and considers all their deeds.

A king is not saved by his army,
nor a warrior preserved by his strength.
A vain hope for safety is the horse;
despite its power it cannot save.

The LORD looks on those who revere him,
on those who hope in his love,
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul is waiting for the LORD.
The LORD is our help and our shield.
In him do our hearts find joy.
We trust in his holy name.

May your love be upon us, O LORD,
as we place our hope in you.


Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
Nourish your people, Lord, for we hunger for your word. Rescue us from the death of sin and fill us with your mercy, that we may share your presence and the joy of all the saints. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen

Pray the “Veni Creator, Come Holy Spirit�
