Spiritual Bouquets are prayers or devotional acts that someone (the giver) has or will offer for someone else (the recipient). It can be given from an individual or group to an individual or group to express joy, sorrow or best wishes, often in commemoration of a special occasion. The recipient is given a card or something similar indicating who the giver is and what the spiritual bouquet consists of. This can be the number of Masses attended, Holy Communions offered, rosaries and/or other prayers said, or good deeds performed. It should include the sender's name and the number of times each offering was or will be done, and it may also include the dates.
All benefit from prayer. The nicest part of this ministry is that it can be done communally or alone, at church or at home. Many of our homebound are the best "pray-ers", so they are a special gift to this ministry.
