Come to Eucharistic Adoration
We will continue with Eucharistic Adoration here at Holy Cross on Wednesdays from 1:00 until 5:00 PM and on Saturday mornings from 8:00 until 9:00 AM.
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.
Mary Jo DiNoto, Pastoral Associate
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.
Keep your eye on the upcoming events. There is sure to be one that fits with your idea of a good time.
