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 into my Soul.
Since I cannot, at this moment, receive you sacramentally, please come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you now as if you were already there and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Prayer by Fr. Kevin O’Gorman SMA:
God, our heavenly Father, grant us the fortitude of Christ your Son to face the Covid-19 crisis with trust, patience and compassion.
Give us the grace of the Holy Spirit to free us from fear and look forward together to the future with healing and hope.
May the intercession of Saint Joseph, the guardian of Jesus, with Mary his mother and Mother of the Church, guide is through this time of peril, preserve us in peace, protect the vulnerable, health care workers and all who serve society, at home and abroad.
The Feast of Saint Joachim and Saint Anne, Grandparents of Jesus, occurs on Sunday 26th July, We are kindly asked to pray the Grandparents Prayer, written by Pope Benedict XVI on this day.
A Prayer for Our New Bishop:
God, eternal shepherd, you tend your Church in many ways and rule us with love.
You have chosen Your servant, Fr. Martin Hayes, to be shepherd of Your flock in the Diocese of Kilmore.
Give him a spirit of courage and right judgement, a spirit of knowledge and love.
By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care,
May he build Your Church as a sign of salvation for the world.
