On Sunday, June 4th , the Catholic Church will celebrate Pentecost! It’s a party for sure!
The coming of the Holy Spirit as promised by our Lord to the disciples is Christ’s love for us and his bride, the Catholic Church!
I have been meditating using ST.Bonaventures book St. Bonaventures Life of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ .
I highly recommend since it was highly recommend by a great saint, St. Francis De Sales. So when I read about Pentecost, I wrote the quote above in my prayer journal as well the one below.
For which reason, he who truly desires to serve God, should endeavor, in this holy solemnity, to be inflamed with love or at least to be enkindled with a vehement desire of being so free from any mixture of the love of this world. – St. Bonaventures
Those are some words to ponder! IF we love our God, this feast must be filled with love , INFLAMED with LOVE for Him.
How hard is not to desire but to actually be free from any mixture of the love of this world!! Lord help me!
But we can teach this to our children; the beauty of this feast day of Holy Spirit and teach them to be inflamed with love for the Church.
We can live it as we celebrate these feasts day and the great saints. We shower them with God’s love and mercy; the Church!
We love this coloring book,Coloring Book about the Holy Spirit yet here are some other sweet coloring pages for all ages.
We can’t have a party without some crafts!
There are some great ideas of snacks from What Can We Leave Out.
It’s a Birthday Party! Celebrate it with a Cake!!
I love God’s Canvas ‘s simple yet elegant cake!
We beseech you, O Lord, let the power of the Holy Spirit be always with us;
let it mercifully purify our hearts, and safeguard us from all harm.
Grant this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
May the Comforter, Who proceeds from You, enlighten our minds, we beseech you, O Lord, and guide us, as Your Son has promised, into all truth.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Holy Spirit, Sweet guest of My Soul, Abide In Me
and Grant That I May Ever abide in Thee.
Something to Ponder:
Here is an interesting article on “Should We Say Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit? Is there a difference?” by Dr. Marshall
I pray you have a blessed Pentecost Feast Day.
