Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus – Archbishop Gomez
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas, we fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know
the love of your Son, Jesus.
On April 17, we remember, St. Simeon, Bishop of Seleucia and Martyr
In 324, Simeon Barsabae became Bishop of Seleucia-Ctesiphon in Persia. Twenty years later, the king, Sapor II began once again to persecute Christians, and Simeon was martyred with numerous companions, including Usthazade, a eunuch in the royal court, whom he converted on his way to martyrdom.

Prayer for Spiritual Communion — St. Alphonsus Liguori
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.
UNITED STATES CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS PRAYER TO OVERCOME RACISM
Saint Peter Claver, Pray for Us.
Oh God, who made Saint Peter Claver a slave of slaves and strengthened him with wonderful charity and patience as he came to their help,
grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things of Jesus Christ,
we may love our neighbor in deeds and in truth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Saint Peter Claver parish invites you to
Live the Easter Season in Your Domestic Church
The Holy Spirit has led us to grow in faith in the Domestic Church of our home more than ever due to COVID-19.
Let’s continue to follow the Holy Spirit’s lead these days of the Easter Season,
drawing closer to the hope of Jesus through the resurrection.
We have journeyed these 40 days of Lent in our Domestic Churches. Now let's journey through the 50 days of the Easter Season! How?
Jesus calls us to die to ourselves so that our lives may
bring blessings to those who suffer.
Let's continue this through doing the Spiritual Works of Mercy
during the Easter Season!
This Sunday is the 3rd Sunday of Easter and the liturgical color is WHITE.
Decorate your altar at home with a white cloth, a candle, a Bible, and a Cross.
As you live-stream or watch a broadcast of Mass, raise your voices in joyful praise and receive Jesus in Spiritual Communion.
Now I know, brothers,
that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;
but God has thus brought to fulfillment
what he had announced beforehand
through the mouth of all the prophets,
that his Christ would suffer.
Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away.”
But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous one.
He is expiation for our sins,
and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.
1 John 2:1-5a
“Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
and rise from the dead on the third day
and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
would be preached in his name
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things.”
