Come to Eucharistic Adoration

We will continue with Eucharistic Adoration here at Holy Cross on Wednesdays from 1:00 until 5:00 PM.

I encourage all who will attend remember “safe distancing” while in church and that prayer at this time is extremely important and necessary.

May you all remain healthy and safe during this world pandemic crisis.

God Bless you all.

It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion, which is a source of grace.

Spiritual Communion is “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and lovingly embrace Him” at a time or in circumstances when one cannot receive Him in sacramental Communion. St Thomas Aquinas.

The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to  receive sacramental Communion and help  us avoid the sins that would make us unable to  receive Holy Communion worthily.

A Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present      in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things                            and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment            receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me                                        to be separated from you.                         Amen.
