PRAYER IN THE TIME OF THE CORONA VIRUS
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.

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.
SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST THE KING
This weekend is the Solemnity of Christ the King 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.
Thus says the Lord GOD:
I myself will look after and tend my sheep.
As a shepherd tends his flock
when he finds himself among his scattered sheep,
so will I tend my sheep.
Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
When everything is subjected to him,
then the Son himself will also be subjected
to the one who subjected everything to him,
so that God may be all in all.
1 Corinthians 15:20-26,28
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
