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.

Dear God, we believe that you made us in your image to be like you. We believe that you sent Jesus to us to show us how to live and how to be happy. We believe that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with us always and help us to be like you. Thank you, God. Thank you very much! Amen.
Prayer: Loving God, we praise and thank you For the newness we see all around us in nature: Trees and grass are green again; The sun has kissed plants and now flowers are blossoming. May your Risen Son, Jesus Christ, Hug our hearts and help us bloom with newness, too. AMEN.
