"Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire"

The picture above was done by Abigail a member of the Children's Rosary when she was just 6 years old. It captures in a special way the vibrance and magnificence of the Feast! There are many graces that are available to us this day and we should remember to ask for them. 
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are:
  1. Wisdom - Embodying all the other gifts. Wisdom strengthens our faith, fortifies hope, perfects charity, and promotes the practice of the virtues in the highest degree.
  2. Understanding - Helps us grasp the meanings of the truths of our holy religion. By faith we know them, by understanding we appreciate and relish them.
  3. Counsel - Endows the soul with supernatural prudence, enabling it to judge promptly and rightly what must be done, especially in difficult circumstances.
  4. Fortitude - Strengthen us to do the will of God in all things.
  5. Knowledge - Enables the soul to evaluate things at their true worth in their relation to God. It shows us the loving care of God even in adversity.
  6. Piety - Begets in our hearts a filial affection for God as our most loving Father. Piety finds the practice of religion not a burdensome duty but a delightful service.
  7. Fear of the Lord - Fills us with a sovereign respect for God, and makes us dread nothing so much as to offend Him by sin.
A novena of 9 Masses was completed yesterday for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Children's Rosary. We pray for all those who are involved with the Children's Rosary that you may be filled with the Holy Spirit.  While the evil one scatters and causes division the Holy Spirit is the unifier. The Holy Spirit is especially important in strengthening families. Thus on this Feast of Pentecost, may we invite the Holy Spirit into our hearts and homes.
