'When I can't get to church'

SpiritualCommunionCover 500


A spiritual communion

Fr David O'Malley SDB has produced a resource for use at home in the coming weeks.

This short prayer pattern follows the shape of the mass and allows you to participate in a homely prayer. It invites Jesus into your home and into your lives for the coming week. It is designed for families and couples, but it can also be used by individuals who have had to self-isolate and anyone who cannot be at Sunday Eucharist.

Saint Mary Mazzarello, co-founder of the Salesian sisters, found it difficult to get to church sometimes through work or illness. Instead, she would sit by the window in her attic, from where she could see the parish church and bring the church into her home. This prayer helps you to do the same.

Please share it with family, friends, students, parishioners and anyone who will find it helpful.
