A Spiritual Bouquet
for Valentine's Day
Looking for a Catholic craft for your children this Valentine's Day? How about a spiritual "bouquet"?
A spiritual bouquet is "a card indicating that the sender will undertake certain devotional acts on behalf of another person, as in honor of a special occasion or in memoriam."
Valentine's Day is a time to share our love with one another, as Christ called us to do with His Greatest Commandment. Even young children can be taught the value and benefit of praying for and with those we love. Here is one idea for a "make it yourself" spiritual bouquet that would make the perfect gift for a parent, grandparent, teacher or special friend.
"He Loves Me Spiritual Bouquet"
Place the flower or flowers in a vase (as simple or elaborate as you wish).
Each night at supper, pray for one different intention as a family after you
pray your grace before meals. This little bouquet will remind you to pray
for these needs, or to lovingly thank God for his gifts in the next few
weeks before we come to Ash Wednesday.
However, with Christ, the answer is ALWAYS: HE LOVES ME!
