Congratulations to Jared, Hudson, Kaelyn, Chloe, Pierre, Gabriel, and Abigail! It was a wonderful celebration and the kids and the parents worked hard to be ready for this day.
The kids were so excited that when I was reading the Gospel words “Peace be with you,” the kids yelled out “and with your spirit!”
The Bishop asked them questions about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They got most of the answers. One of the kids said forgiveness because in the Gospel Jesus gives the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of sins.
Homily May 13 2018 – Ascension Sunday and Mother’s Day! Mother’s are part of God’s great plan!
Challenge: Think of a situation in your life where you are tempted to think that God is absent. Maybe things are not going your way in the church, or in your family, or in your country. Then say the prayer:
God, help me to see how you’re working and to trust that you are taking care of things.
