Decenario to the Holy Spirit

Last year, at Pentecost, we published a post, which you can see by clicking hereThe book on Pentecost and the Souls in Purgatory, approached from the point of view of the spirituality of St. Faustina Kowalska, is not worth repeating, because it has already been written. There is no point in repeating it, because it has already been written.

This year we recommend that you imbibe the spirituality of Francisca Javiera del Valle, whose life dedicated to God in Carrión de los Condes (Palencia, Spain) is an example of hard work and exact fulfillment of concrete duty, of sanctification in the humble work of a seamstress and servant of others, carried out for the love of God.

She has written several works, of which the best known and most widespread is the Decenary to the Holy Spirit, which is the text we recommend to follow with devotion these days following the Ascension and console us because, having been orphaned, without the physical presence of the person of Our Lord Jesus Christ risen, we await with St. Mary, in the Cenacle, the arrival of the impetuous wind, of the light of fire over the head, of the divine inspiration, of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our souls.

The souls in purgatory will benefit from this devotion of ours, because it is possible to follow the Decenario giving it a peculiar approach, very simple, which is to add to the intention proposed by Francisca Javiera, another one more: to offer every day, at the same time that the decade is fulfilled, a plenary indulgence for a soul in purgatory, every day. In this way the waiting for the Holy Spirit, which is now done in a symbolic and liturgical way because the Holy Spirit is ALREADY in the soul in grace of every believer, is joined to the need of concrete and effective charity that we can have, every day, with the souls in purgatory.
