My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. Although You have already come, I embrace You & unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen

Ukraine Appeal
As a community, I invite you to come early to Mass. The Blessed Sacrament will continue to be exposed on the Altar as a focus for our prayers for peace.  We shall, as you will see in the newsletter and the readings sheet, use SCIAF as the agency of our charitable support. In time we shall begin to gather goods to send – once we have established how we might best get those goods to those who need them.

From the Archdiocese

A prayer for peace in Ukraine

O Loving God, your Son, Jesus Christ, came into the world to do your Will and leave us His Peace. Through the intercession and example of our Blessed Mother Mary, Queen of Peace, grant us the wisdom and humility to reflect that peace to the world. Inspire our thoughts, words, and deeds to bear witness to your presence in our hearts. May your Holy Spirit fill us with every grace and blessing so that we may pursue what leads to peace for all humanity. Amen
