Special Prayers

Fr. Manny asked that we share these prayers with you during this time:

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION IN TIME OF PANDEMIC
O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith. O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee. Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure. Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.
Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God. In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
- Adapted from the prayer of Pope Francis

A Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now 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.

Prayer to St. Joseph for a Special Intention
Glorious Saint Joseph, protector of Jesus Christ,
to you I raise my heart and my hands to implore your powerful intercession.
Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus
the help and the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare.
I ask particularly for a special favor I now implore.
(Make your petition here...)
Guardian of the Word Incarnate,
I ask with confidence that your prayers on my behalf
will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
O glorious Saint Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ,
and for the glory of His name, hear our prayers.
Amen.

From Fr. Manny

Fr. Manny has requested we share the following with you:

Reflections On Our Times by: Armenak Hermez
Dear Friends,
As we shelter in place this Easter Season,
troubled as the disciples might have been in the “upper room,” let us hear echoes of
our Lord’s command for us “not to be afraid,” but find comfort in the hope of the Resurrection.
Let us at this dire juncture count our blessings, especially those we often neglect or are too busy or distracted to recognize.
Let us consider this unusual time as a journey through the desert of the soul—
an opportunity, (a gift from God)—
in which to reflect on what really matters;
to pause and ponder the meaning and purpose of life.
Let us rise above the fray of our ordinary, petty preoccupations,
and recall instead the cherished sweetness of the many occasions we shared with our families and friends—
the sacred moments we broke together with them—
and truly honor those memories by vowing never to forget them, nor take any loved one for granted.
And, finally, let us silently, quietly, in the inner sanctum of our hearts,
pay tribute to those who daily dare to enter the eye of the storm,
sacrificing their lives so others may live, for indeed, “No one has greater love than this” (John 15:13);
let us pray for them and their families that
they may come out of this awful ordeal unscathed.
