Pretty plate

How to celebrate the Church’s birthday when a) you’ve forgotten to buy fruit for a Pentecost Chocolate Fondue Extravaganza and b) everyone is worn out and under the weather? You could take out the pretty plates and the colourful tablecloth and prepare someone’s favourite lunch. For us it happened to be tuna salad and potato chips. It was either that or Kraft Dinner, which just didn’t seem festive enough. The kids had brought home a colouring page from St. Clement that had the Fruit of the Holy Spirit inscribed on some fruit and we had a discussion about how God the Holy Spirit did not bring fruit, among other things. Come, Holy Spirit!
