It was with a broken heart that I learned this morning that all public masses in our diocese have been cancelled until further notice. Since I know that many of you, my brothers and sisters, find yourself in the same disheartening situation, I wanted to share this prayer of Spiritual Communion that I have held in my heart for the last 10 years. This is not an official prayer of the Church; it is my own plea to God. It has brought me great comfort over the years when I have been unable to make it to daily Mass.
although I greatly desire it,
at this moment I am unable
to receive You in the
Most Holy Eucharist.
Therefore, I beseech thee, O Lord,
to bestow upon me mystically
all those graces I would
Fill me up until I am overflowing,
so that I may, in turn, share those graces
with the rest of the world.
Have faith, brothers and sisters! When churches are closed and the liturgy is denied us, I believe that Christ will pour himself into every heart that cries out to him with longing. ❤️
PLEASE feel free to download and print this prayer! And share with your friends and family!
