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.
Archbishop Jose H. Gomez dispenses all the Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and all Catholics currently in the Archdiocese from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass until further notice. If you are 65 years or older or have underlying health issues, it is recommended that you continue to safely live-stream Mass safely from your home.
Thank you to all who answered the call to do Missions of Mercy from home this year!
About 100 no-sew blankets were made and dropped off for My Stuff Bag. They will be part of a small duffel bag of care given to children who are removed from their home suddenly to get them to a safe place. The blankets you made will feel like a hug!
About 50 face masks were made and dropped off to help those who are unable to go out and purchase one.
During this year's annual June month of mercy at St. Peter Claver you made a difference from home, thank you!
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.
God, source of all freedom
this day is bright with the memory
of those who declared that life and liberty
are Your gift to every human being.
Help us to continue a good work begun long ago.
Make our vision clear and our will strong:
that only in human solidarity will we find liberty,
and justice only in the honor that belongs
to every life on earth.
Turn our hearts toward the family of nations:
to understand the ways of others,
to offer friendship,
and to find safety only in the common good of all.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
(Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers)
This weekend is the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time and the Liturgical color is green.
Decorate your at home altar with a green 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.
His dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Brothers and sisters: You are not in the flesh; on the contrary, you are in the spirit, if only the Spirit of God dwells in you.
"Come to Me, all you who are labored and are burdened, and I will give you rest."
Lord, help us to not focus on what we want, but on what You want.
During this COVID-19 pandemic help us to think of the Common Good
rather than what is easy and comfortable for ourselves. And help us to turn to You for comfort and rest. Amen.
