CORONA OF THORNS

CAN'T GET TO MASS?

Keep up with the readings each day and reflect with us. Even though we may not be able to receive Holy Communion, we can still invite Christ into our hearts through spiritual communion.

PRAYER FOR 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 OUR LADY

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey

as a sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.

At the foot of the Cross

you participated in Jesus' pain with steadfast faith.

You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.

We are certain that you will provide

so that as you did in Cana of Galilee,

joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love,

to conform ourselves to the Father's will

and to do what Jesus tells us.

He who took our sufferings upon himself

and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the cross,

to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.


We seek refuge under your protection, O holy Mother of God.

Do not despise our pleas, we who are put to the test,

and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
