O Mary, Queen of Apostles,
pray for us your children
who entrust ourselves entirely to you.
– Venerable Mother Thecla Merlo
Today, the second day of the Novena to Mary, Queen of Apostles, is the first day of the Novena to the Holy Spirit for the feast of Pentecost. So today, our prayer will focus on Mary as Spouse of the Spirit.
Mary, Queen of Apostles, rejoice for the days
in which you were Teacher, Comforter
and Mother of the apostles in the Cenacle.
You invoked and received the divine Paraclete,
the Spirit with the seven gifts,
Love of the Father and of the Son,
Transformer of the apostles.
With your invincible intercession
and your humble and irresistible prayers,
which always move God’s heart,
obtain for me this grace….
