Novena to Holy Spirit: Day 7

Growth In The Freedom That Love Gives
Heal our wounds - our strength renew;
On our dryness, pour thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away!
Come, 0 Blessed Spirit of Counsel. Make my thoughts holy, my love pure, 
and my works pleasing to God.
Father, guided by Your Spirit, 
may I strive to make loving choices and respect all life.
May we be aware of our dignity as Your sons and daughters, 
redeemed with the Blood of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
