spiritual communionPope Francis told people on March 15, "United to Christ we are never alone, but instead form one body of which he is the head. It is a union that is nourished with prayer and also with spiritual communion in the Eucharist, a practice that is recommended when it isn't possible to receive the sacrament."

Because it is not always possible for everyone to receive at every Mass, the idea of "spiritual Communion" is part of Catholic tradition. We invite Jesus into ourselves when receiving the actual sacrament isn't possible. In the 1700s, St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote a special prayer for spiritual communion:

"My Jesus, I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you more than anything in the world, and I hunger to receive you. But since I cannot receive Communion at this moment, feed my soul at least spiritually. I unite myself to you now as I do when I actually receive you."

Postlude of the Mass of Thanksgiving......of Father Michael Feldtz. Brook Benedict, Organist.

Stewardship Thought
May 24, 2020 - "I am praying for them…" (John 17:9)

Prayer is the foundation of our Faith and the foundation of Stewardship. Pray in good times and in bad. Prayer is always the first best option in any situation, not just the last resort. Pray for friends and family and for those that don't treat you very well. Pray to give praise, to thank, and to ask God for help. Pray to see what God wants you to do with the gifts He has given you.
