Have a blessed Pentecost!

It is really unusual to celebrate Mother's Day and Pentecost on the same day, but I pray that the 'worldly celebrations' do not take over the celebration of the wonderful gift we received at Pentecost. Let's be thankful for the gift of the Spirit!

Come, O Spirit of GodHoly Spirit, I offer myselfto your work of healing, peace and reconciliation.In my busy world, bless my silent moments.In the stillness of my heart, may I find peace within myself,peace with others, and peace with you Amen.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

A baby asked God, 'They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?' God said, 'Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.'The child further inquired, 'But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.' God said, 'Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy.'

Again the child asked, 'And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?' God said, 'Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.' 'And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?' God said, 'Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.

''Who will protect me?' God said, 'Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.''But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.' God said, 'Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.'

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, 'God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name.'God said, 'You will simply call her, 'Mum.'

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
