Fr. Ferrier's Reflection for the Second Sunday of Easter 4-19-20
Evening Prayer: Feast of St. Katherine of Siena - April 29

Fr. David Buffum's Reflection for the Third Sunday of Easter

Father David Buffum offers his reflection for the Third Sunday of Easter in this week's video reflection.   And let us remember, that even though we are apart, we may always partake in a Spiritual Communion.   Saturday, April 25 was to be First Holy Communion at St. Katherine of Siena Parish.  Let us be joined in communion with all the young people now, and on that glorious day when they may receive the Lord in the Body and Blood of Christ.

A Spiritual Communion

Down throughout the ages there have been
times when people were prevented from
receiving Holy Communion during Mass. We
find ourselves in such a time presently.
St. Alphonsus Liguori offered the people of
his time and ours, a great act of humility and
community in the following prayer:

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, 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.

Please remember in a special way the young
people in our parish who were to have made their
First Holy Communion at this time. May they
soon be able to receive this “inestimable gift.”
