Sunday, May 16, 2004 - Sixth Sunday of Easter
to this week's Gospel Word Search Activity
May 16, 2004 we have the readings for the Sixth Sunday of Easter.
This week's Gospel story again takes place at the Last Supper, when Jesus is
quietly speaking with His disciples and giving them special words of
instruction. Jesus promises His disciples that God will be with them.
He asks them to follow Him and to stay true to the things He has taught
them. God will send the Holy Spirit to give the disciples (and us!)
wisdom and understanding of His teachings. Jesus, through the Holy
Spirit, will bring peace to their hearts (and to ours!) - He tells them not
to feel troubled or afraid.
Jesus and God send the Holy Spirit, the third person of
the Holy Trinity, to calm and comfort us during times of difficulty.
We need to remember in our prayers to ask the Holy Spirit to teach and guide
us, and to help us to be true followers of Jesus. Also, during this
very difficult time in our world, we must all pray together for peace and
harmony, and for an end to war and division.
Take some quiet time to pray and talk with God as you
color. To color the pictures, click on the small image to enlarge and use

The Rosary Comic Book tells the
story of the lives of Jesus and his mother Mary.
You can read it, as you would
any regular comic book. Or you can pray with it, using the pictures
instead of the beads of a traditional rosary.
Whichever way you decide to use
it, The Rosary Comic Book will bring you closer to Jesus and Mary!
This is also an excellent book for anyone who wants to
learn to pray the Rosary. The illustrations are beautiful and
thoughtfully done. The layout of the book was chosen carefully to help
children and those just learning the Rosary to concentrate on the
Sacred Mysteries, rather than struggle to remember what comes next.
Each decade of the Rosary is laid out on two facing pages with the
full text of the Our Father, Hail Mary (once per decade), Glory Be,
and the Fatima Prayer included, so that while you or your children's
hearts are still learning these prayers you aren't distracted by the
need to recall them. The accompanying Scripture texts teach about the
Mysteries themselves and draw one deeper into prayer and meditation.
