Can you help? Dear Jesus, Fill my life, Holy Spirit of God, with joy and love and hope. Live in me so I can show others how much you love them. Amen. Think about... some ways you can tell people about Jesus: B efore Jesus ascended into Heaven he told his friends that he would send them the gift of the Holy Spirit. They waited and prayed and when the Holy Spirit came to them at Pentecost they were filled with excitement and love. They also felt brave and strong. They were now ready to go out and spread the Good News. ­, by talking about Him ­, by being good and setting a good example to those around us ­, by making friends and not falling out ­, by thinking about and doing things for others We haven`t got a name or a logo for your Paper yet so we need your help, have a look on Page 2 and see if can start to think about some ideas ? ? ? ? ? ?

When her father became King in 1937 Princess Margaret, the Queen’,s younger sister (aged 6), asked Elizabeth “,Does that mean you’,re going to become Queen?”, Elizabeth (aged 11) replied “,Yes, I suppose it does”,. By 1940, at the age of 14, and the country amidst the horrors of World War II Elizabeth had made her first radio broadcast addressing child evacuees saying to them “,We know, every one of us, that in the end all will be well”,. Princess Elizabeth married Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten in 1947 and on the morning of their wedding he became known as the Duke of Edinburgh. Queen Elizabeth II is Head of State of the United Kingdom and of 15 Commonwealth Countries. G o d S a v e O u r G r a c i o u s Q u e e n “,My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong. But I shall not have the strength to carry out this resolution alone unless you join in it with me”,. O n 6 February 1952 the modern Elizabethan age commenced. And this year Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 60 years on the throne, her Diamond Jubilee. The only other Monarch to achieve this momentous jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897. 2 Dear Children Welcome to your very own catholic newspaper. But it hasn’,t got a name yet! Can you help? In the next edition we will run a competition to find a name for the paper and a logo. The winning name and logo will then be used in your paper from issue 3 later on this year 2012. So now’,s the time to start thinking about some ideas, and practising on some drawings. Look out for the Competition in the next edition when we will tell you where to send your entry and what the prizes will be. We are looking forward to seeing your entries, so good luck to you all.

O ur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. When we say this prayer we are speaking to our Father in heaven. He knows each one of us and wants us to love Him and those around us. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We ask our Father in heaven to help us to live as He would want us to. Give us this day our daily bread. We all need food and water to live but lots of children around the world suffer dreadful famine. We pray that we will always be prepared to share what we have with others. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. We say sorry to God for the times we have misbehaved and ask Him to help us to make up with anyone we have fallen out with And lead us not into temptation. We ask God to help us to be good and the help to say No if we are tempted to do something that we know is wrong But deliver us from evil. We ask God to always protect us from anything that is bad and to help us grow in His love for us. Amen Courtesy of Getting to know God by Christine Pedotti.
