Novena of St. Philip Neri
you gave us St. Philip Neri
to be for us an example of holy joy and mirth.
We ask you as the great day of Pentecost approaches
to fill us with this joy of the Holy Spirit
as you did your faithful servant Philip Neri.
Through his intercession,
may we conclude this Easter Season
with a heart burning with love for You.
May the Holy Spirit so fill our heart and soul
that You become our only love and desire.
Enkindle in us the zeal and burning love
of the disciples gathered into Upper Room on Pentecost Sunday.
Then we will glorify You through Your Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the power of the Holy Spirit before all the world.
