Just a Thought... from Fr. Dan
Our God is indeed a God of revelation who constantly reveals Himself in many ways. As his children, we are called to be a part of that ongoing revelation in how we treat one another. When Jesus speaks of his glory, he speaks of the love that his Father reveals in and through him. Jesus asks us to glorify him in the many ways we treat one another with kindness. When we exhibit love, forgiveness, mercy, and compassion, we reveal a Redeemer constantly working in and through us!

Acts of Spiritual Communion
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 a source of grace. Spiritual Communion means uniting oneself in prayer with Christ’s sacrifice and worshiping him in his Body and Blood. 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.
