Children's Liturgy of the Word

The Children's Liturgy of the Word is added here courtesy of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ. From their site: "In 2005, in honor of the 200th birthday of St. Maria De Mattias, foundress of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, the United States Adorers launched this feature on this website: Children’s Liturgy of the Word lesson plans for children kindergarten through grade three. Each week, catechists will find several Sundays worth of readings and Psalm responses taken from the Lectionary for Masses with Children, complemented by prayer, reflection, discussion questions and activities. Please feel free to download these and use them however you wish."

Dear Jesus, Before you went to Heaven, you promised that you would send us the Holy Spirit. Today we give special THANKS for the GIFT of the Holy Spirit to the Church, to us. Help us to listen always to the Spirit in our lives. We pray this as we make the sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
