Children choose, “First come, first served,” what they want to carry into the classroom.
Then, they remain standing for the reading.
Our Topics for Today
“Faith is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us, and that Holy Church proposes for our belief, because he is truth itself. By faith “man freely commits his entire self to God.” For this reason the believer seeks to know and do God’s will. “The righteous shall live by faith.” Living faith “work[s] through charity.”
Symbol: The Cross
“Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ’s promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit.”
Symbol: The Anchor
“Charity is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God.”
Symbol: The Heart

We Read an Excerpt from “The Gospel” for Today
“I will not leave you orphans.”
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate* to be with you always,
the Spirit of truth,* which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live.
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.”
We Read about Bernadette–“The Life of a Saint.”
“Our Lady appeared at Lourdes 159 years ago. Massabielle is now a famous place of pilgrmage. Each year, five million people pray and bathe there asking God to heal their bodies and their hearts.” From: Magnifkid! May 21, 2017
