The Holy Trinity
This paper plate dove craft is simple enough for your Vacation Bible School or Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
This reflection will help youth consider the reality of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. How does Jesus help us overcome our fears?
Just as when we were children, we were afraid to be alone in the dark and could only be assured by the presence of someone who loved us. Well this is exactly what happened on Holy Saturday, the voice of God resounded in the realm of death. The unimaginable occurred; namely, love penetrated Hell.
The cross expresses love, service, unreserved self-giving: it truly is the “tree of life”, of overabundant life. – Pope Francis
On Good Friday, Catholics remember the death by crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is a solemn day of fast and abstinence.
Easter is the most significant celebration in the church year. Catholics celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Easter is actually an octave, lasting eight days.
This reflection will help youth understand why Jesus is the “Light of the World”. Jesus Christ is the ultimate revelation of the heart of God.
It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the holy ones greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.
