SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

 

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

 

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

 

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually

into my heart.

 

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite     myself wholly to You.
     Never permit me to be separated from You.

AMEN

POPE FRANCIS' PRAYER TO MARY DURING

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

 

O Mary, you always shine on our path

as a sign of salvation and of hope. 

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, 

who at the cross took part in Jesus' pain,

keeping your faith firm.  You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will

provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return

to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.  Help us,

Mother of Divine love, to conform to the will of the Father

 and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon

himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection.

Amen

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God.  

Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

 

 

Quote:

"The good we do never dies.  It lives on forever-

in other people, in other places and in other times"
