On Sunday, 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 your "back" button to return here.

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.
