My Dear Friends,

With an open heart to our Lord’s teaching we can find our way in these difficult times and flee to our Lord Jesus for guidance and strength to find our way.  Let us continue to pray for our nation and beg God for peace and healing. One of my favorite prayers is the Anima Christi:

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O Good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds hide me.
Permit me not to be separated from you.
From the wicked foe, defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
and bid me come to you
That with your saints I may praise you
For ever and ever. Amen.

 

Peace,

Fr. Mike


AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

MY JESUS,

I believe that Thou art in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things, and I long for Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou hast already come, I embrace Thee and unite myself entirely to Thee; never permit me to be separated from Thee.

St. Alphonsus Maria de' Ligouri
