This year the Novena coincides with the preparation for the Solemnity of Pentecost. It will again be Mary, Pope Francis reminds us, who will help us to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, the culmination of the Paschal Mystery. “Mary was there  with the Apostles when the Holy Spirit came, protagonist with the first Community of the wonderful experience of Pentecost. Let us pray with Her so that She may obtain an ardent missionary spirit for the Church.” (Regina Caeli, 31 May 2020)

In these difficult times that all humanity is going through, let us turn to the Help of Christians with the same trust of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello, certain of being heard.

MARIA AUXILIUM CHRISTIANORUM, ORA PRO NOBIS!
