Honoring the Trinity

Describe the ways you relate to each person of the Blessed Trinity.

Take time to reflect on the meaning of today's feast.
Then, to honor the three Persons in one God, complete
this version of the Sign of the Cross. Speak directly to the
Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit from your own heart.

Draw a large shamrock with three large leaves. In one leaf,
write the following statement and then complete it:
IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER

Father, I praise you because. . .

Suggestions: you give life to all things.
you fill our world with good things.
you sent us your only Son, Jesus.
(CHOOSE ONE OR WRITE YOUR OWN.)

In the next leaf, write
AND OF THE SON

Jesus, Son of God, I believe in you because. . .

Suggestions: you came into our world as one of us.
you suffered and died for us.
you became the Bread of Life.
(CHOOSE ONE OR WRITE YOUR OWN.)

In the next leaf, write
AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Holy Spirit, I love you because. . .

Suggestions: you teach us to love.
you fill us with God?s life.
you strengthen us to believe.
(CHOOSE ONE OR WRITE YOUR OWN.)

When could you pray this prayer to the Blessed Trinity?

Christ at Play

Christ, the Wisdom of God, delights in "playing" with the sons and daughters of God on earth. How do you picture Christ at play? Does he look like his gospel-self fishing with his friends? like a teenager of today making music? like a child playing tag? On a separate piece of paper, draw or write a description of Christ at play.

How will this image of Christ help you to know Christ better this week?

Crafting Creations

In the first reading, Wisdom is God's companion during creation. Allow children to be creators. Give each child a lump of clay and encourage him/her to form various creations. Provide time for children to play with their creations.

A Trinity of Love

Reinforce the concept of the Holy Trinity. Give each child a piece of white construction paper. Provide a heart-shaped sponge and green paint for children to make shamrocks. Have children dip the sponge in the paint and stamp a heart on their paper, saying, "In the name of the Father." Have them stamp a second heart, saying, "And of the Son." Have them stamp a third heart, saying, "And of the Holy Spirit."

Make sure that the points of the hearts touch, making a shamrock. Stems may be added using green markers.
