REFLECTIONS, PRAYERS & READINGS

PRIVATE WORSHIP 

An Act of spiritual communion when unable to attend Mass

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden: cleanse the .thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

OUR FATHER

ACT OF CONTRITION

Take a moment or two to think of the times when you have failed to reflect God’s love in your life and offer them to Christ. Heavenly Father I am sorry that I havesinned and fallen short of your Love for me. I pray that you would forgive me my sins for the sake of my crucified saviour, your Son, Jesus, the Christ. Amen.

COLLECT

Let the power of the Holy Spirit come upon me, I beseech you O Lord, that both my heart and my mind might be cleansed and that I might be defended from all adversaries through Crhrist my Lord, Amen.

READING      

Revelations 3:20

Behold I stand at the door and know; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in and eat with them and they with me.

PSALM 62 

On God alone my soul in stillness waits; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold, so that I shall never be shaken.

GOSPEL John15:5

I am the vine and you are the branches. Those that abide with me I will abide with them and they will produce much good fruit.

INTERCESSION

As we prepare to receive Christ in His Spiritual Sacrament we take time to pray for those who have asked and are in need of our prayers; we pray for he Church, the clergy and all its people and we especially hold before God those who will die today.

Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them,

May they rest in peace and rise in glory, Amen.

ACT OF RECEPTION

In union, Father, with the faithful at every altar of your Church where the Blessed Body and Blood of your Son is being offered, I desire to join my humble praise and thanksgiving with them. I believe that you are very present in the most Holy Sacrament and since I am exiled from receiving you sacramentally I pray that you will come spiritually into my heart that I may be united with you in my very soul. Lord Jesus, never let me be parted from you and grant that I may always live in you Love, Amen.

 

Come, Lord Jesus, dwell in me in the fullness of your strength, in the perfection of your ways and in the holiness of your Spirit; rule over every hostile power and doubt that I may be truly yours in the power of the Spirit and to the glory of the Father.

May the Body and Bolld of our Lord, Jesus Christ, preserve my body and soul to everlasting live, Amen.

ACT OF PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

Blessed, praised and adored be Jesus Christ in the most holy Sacrament of the Altar.

ANIMA CHRISTI

Soul of Christ sanctify me,

Body of Christ save me,

Blood of Christ inebriate me,

Water from the side of Christ wash me,

Passion of Christ strengthen me.

O good Jesus, hear me,

Within your wounds hide me,

Let me never be parted form you.

In the hour of my death call me

that I may come to you

that with your Saints I may praise you forever, Amen.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Ezekiel's vision

The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on......
