Spiritual Communion (Download)

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.

Precious Jesus,
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
otherwise receive.
Fill me up until I am overflowing,
so that I may, in turn, share those graces
with the rest of the world.
Amen

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!

Prayer to St. Joseph for Husbands

 

Prayer to St. Joseph for husbands

St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may be a good and holy husband just as you were for Mary. Help me to stay strong in adversity, faithful in temptation, and prayerful in all the decisions I make.

Pray for me, that I may be a kind and loving father just as you were for Jesus. Help me to be firm in discipline, gentle in guidance, and honourable in the example I set.

Walk with me as you walked with the Mother and Child on the road to Egypt. May I bring peace and joy and love to my family, with you as my example and God as my strength.

Amen
