Spiritual Communion Prayer

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, 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. –St. Francis

  1. Thank you Father LeRoy, Father Tom, and Deacon Chris for the beautiful Palm Sunday mass. Also thanks to the choir!!

  2. We really appreciate seeing and hearing our own pastor, deacon, lectors, and choir. Almost like being there. Great decorating job! Love having the words for the songs, as we found ourselves inspired to sing along.
    Please correct the spelling of Fr. LeRoy’s last name on the opening screen – “Scheierl”
