Childern's Pilgrimage to Walsingham

Walsingham is a lovely place of pilgrimage for Catholic and other Christians.
In the Slipper Chapel, the Catholic national shrine and Basilica of Our Lady, stands a replica of the famous Mary statue with Jesus on her lap. Many Christians have found answers to their prayers in Walsingham. In the middle ages, Walsingham used to be one of the most important places of pilgrimage.

We have attended this years' pilgrimage for Children led by the diocesan bishop Allan Hopes.

Trinity Sunday

On Trinity Sunday the Church celebrates the Holy Trinity, the three Persons of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Let us Pray to the one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that our lives may bear witness to our faith.
Father, you sent your Word to bring us truth and your Spirit to make us holy.
Through them we come to know the mystery of your life.
Help us to worship you, one God in three Persons, by proclaiming and living our faith in you.
We ask you this, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
one God, true and living, for ever and ever.

Pentecost is the birthday of our Holy Roman Catholic Church! 

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And you shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary visists Elisabeth, her relative. They are both pregnant. Mary is pregnant with Jesus and Elisabeth with John the Baptist.
And she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
(Luke 1:42–45)

Let us pray:

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Ascension Day

Ascension Day is on the 40th day of Easter, when Jesus ascended into heaven.

Let us pray that the risen Christ will lead us to eternal life.
God our Father, make us joyful in the ascension of your Son Jesus Christ.
May we follow him into the new creation, for his ascension is our glory and our hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
