Day 5

HUNKERED BUT NOT CONQUERED – DAY 5

 

Dear brothers and Sisters,

 

I hope everyone is doing good in keeping healthy and safe. As I said in my earlier letter to all our parishioners, we will do our best during these challenging times to be in touch from our bunkers. From time to time, I will be reaching out to everyone virtually. I will be making some posts through our various channels of online communication( parish group email, parish website and parish Facebook page).

I can also be reached through our parish phone lines (6132571284 or 6132571630). If you really really need to see me in person, we can also make arrangements for it.

 

SPIRITUAL RESOURCES

Today I am sending you three short videos for your spiritual upliftment and edification.

Here you have the Catholic Church’s teaching on Spiritual Communion. Since many of us may not be able to receive Jesus Sacramentally, we can commune with him spiritually. In this email you will find the text you can use for spiritual communion.

An Act of 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 into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally into my heart. I embrace  You as if You were already there and unite wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
