This activity is to show children how the Holy Spirit is like the wind. We can’t see the Holy Spirit directly, but we can see the work of the Spirit. You will need one or more kites and an outdoor location to fly them.
The Ascension of the Lord - Year B
This reflection encourages youth to think about what it means to spread the Gospel to “the whole world”
This prayer to the Holy Spirit, which is attributed to St. Augustine, is one of my favorite prayers. It is all about the call to holiness, which our Holy Father recently focused on. Download a printable copy of this prayer.
Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.
The readings for the The Ascension of the Lord for Year B encourage us to being open to the Holy Spirit and willing to spread the Good News. Discussion topics for this week could include evangelization, the Holy Spirit, and transitions.
