Week of March 28th, 2016
Only when someone values love more highly than life, that is, only where someone is ready to put life second to love, for the sake of love, can love be stronger and more than death. If it is to be more than death it must first be more than mere life. Jesus' total love for men, which leads him to the cross, is perfected in total stepping-over to the Father and therein becomes stronger than death, because in this it is at the same time total "being held" by him.
St. Thomas Aquinas once wrote of the Eucharist, "No other sacrament has greater healing power; through it sins are purged away, virtues are increased, and the soul is enriched with an abundance of every spiritual gift." And yet Aquinas also taught that it is essential for us to receive Jesus with faith if we want to experience all these gifts. How sad that Judas, because of his lack of faith, was not helped by the Eucharist he had received! Don't let this happen to you! Try to spend some time before then examining your heart and asking how you can increase your expectation and desire for Jesus. Every time you receive Communion, you are receiving him.
-- Pope Benedict XVI

LENT Spiritual Campaign
This week, we are visiting the Bó Hoa Thiêng Corner of Đoàn Chúa Cứu Thế in Louisville, KY. This project allow Ấu Nhi to think about things they want to pray for or be thankful for each day of Lent. The kids will write one for each day on cut-out leaves, flowers, and animals to put on the tree. At the beginning, the tree may seem small, but as time progress we will get a different perspective. The trees are designed to allow the Ấu Nhi to visually understand the differences they can make by seeing the empty branches beginning to fill up and blossom as Lent continues.
The purpose of this Lenten project is for the kids to learn and to reflect. It is important to stress the necessity of incorporating prayers into their daily life. Also, it shows them the qualities of gratitude and almsgiving. The Ấu Nhi, through the Lenten spirit, is actively participating in the Rice Bowl Project as well!
Share your project/campaign with us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to report the result since Phong Trào collects Spiritual Flowers from its members. Please contribute your Spiritual Flowers at VEYM Treasure Book. Recognition Awards will be given at ĐHVĐH to Chapters that participate and contribute Spiritual Flowers to VEYM Treasure Book.
