Fr. Barry has set up a window for 24/7 Adoration of the Tabernacle in the upper parking lot of the Church. Also, every Friday, there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament between 4:30pm and 7:30 pm and priests will be available for confession between 4:30 and 7:00 pm. Come spend time with Jesus! Please stay in your cars and remember to physically distance yourselves.
The priest will also have Eucharist for distribution, especially to those not ready to come inside for daily or Sunday Mass. We want our parishioners to have all opportunity in these pandemic times to receive Holy Communion.
PRAYER TO JESUS WHEN IN VIEW OF THE TABERNACLE
You can make a Spiritual Communion OR ask for a Eucharistic Visitor’s Blessing when you come before our LORD, as here, in the Blessed Sacrament. Here is the prayer:
Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live, “hidden,” for love of me. We meet in this special encounter! I love You, O my God. I cannot receive You in Holy Communion, but I come, nevertheless, because I know You are here. It is a sweet meeting for ourselves; so, please hear my prayers, and receive my gaze and my look toward You, even in silent accord. Please attend to me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Soothe my spirit, too, and wash over me in my body, and renew my mind. I am Yours.
As the centurion in Matthew’s gospel believed in Your healing powers, asking You to “say the Word” to send the healing; I believe that, while I am not worthy either, You can speak action for any healing that I, or another, needs. I visit You with longing for what You want to do and say to me. By Your Great Love, Mercy, Goodness, Justice, and Truth: Purify me. Sanctify me. Render me as Your own. I also come as intercessor for others, for You have taught me the love one another new commandment. Lord, I pray for them, even asI pray for myself, for one day, as You said: “All shall be one.”** May it be so, forever. Amen.
