On Wednesday the 12th May, we did a liturgy about the truth and how we could live it out. Each group had a different part in preparing the whole school liturgy. The opening music was Amazing Grace in 50 different languages – lots of us heard our own home language and it was very beautiful. We imagined what it must have been like for the disciples who could suddenly speak different languages at Pentecost. We made the sign of the cross and started with this ”Sit relaxed wherever you are, close your eyes and feel the Holy Spirit’s presence.” We had a moment of silence to think about the times we have not told the truth and to think about what the truth is.
The scripture was the day’s Gospel reading from John 16:12-15. The Gospel reading was about God and the Holy Spirit guiding us to the truth because God is the rightful and forgiving God. Aiden said, Jesus once said I am the way, the truth and the light. We need the Holy spirit to know the truth. One table also came up with an acrostic poem which was ”T is for teaching of Jesus, R is for Right Judgement, U is for understanding, T is for time spent with Jesus and H is for Happiness following Jesus. Then we had a true or false game with some silly ones like strawberry is the best ice-cream and some like “Only Christians can pray.” The last one was about the Holy Trinity and that Jesus is real.
This weeks mission is to tell the truth no matter how hard it is and ask the Holy Spirit to guide us to the truth.
We should try and tell the truth no matter what!
Pope John Paul the 2nd said that truth is not always the same as the majority decision! This means that what other people are doing isn’t always the right thing and we need the guidance of the Holy Spirit to help us make the right choices. Year 3 wrote a really good evaluation – they loved the music and the true/false games. They liked dancing to My Lighthouse at the end and thought to make it better we could have gone into the hall for more space.
