Just a Thought... from Fr. Dan

When we hear the phrase, ‘He’s the salt of the earth,’ we know exactly what it means. It usually refers to someone who was, or is, just plain nice. Not everyone realizes that Jesus first spoke that particular phrase to His disciples. He invites us to be salt of the earth and light to the world. He asks us to live so that people see our goodness and bask in its light. For people to notice, all we have to do is be like Him.

In Him,

Fr. Dan

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.
