Chalice and Host

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.
Amen.

grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things of Jesus Christ,
we may love our neighbor in deeds and in truth.

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

PRAYER IN THE TIME OF THE CORONA VIRUS

Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus – Archbishop Gomez

Our Lady of GuadalupeHoly 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.

Amen.
