Holy Spirit. Amen.
Come, Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of your faithful.

Who remembers what color chasuble the priest was wearing
at Mass this weekend?
Every Sunday at Mass, there are three readings from the
Bible. The third reading is from the Gospels, which are
books that tell us what Jesus said and what Jesus did.
The reading on Sunday was the story about a blind man who
asked Jesus for help.
The mans name was Bartimaeus. Bartimaeus was blind,
and he was a beggar. Do you know what it means for
someone to be blind? ..... Do you know what it means if
someone is a beggar? ...
Bartimaeus had heard that Jesus could perform miracles,
and he had faith that Jesus could perform miracles. He
called out to Jesus and asked for mercy and for healing.
The crowd told Bartimaeus to be quiet, but he just became
louder. Then, Jesus heard the shouts and asked his
disciples to bring the blind man to him. Jesus healed the
blind man. A miracle happened for Bartimaeus because of
his faith in Jesus.
