Spiritual Communion

When in these difficult days, when churches are closed and we lack the possibility of receiving sacramental communion, and we need strength and bravery to cope with hard moments in life, to fight laziness, small-heartedness, with temptations – then look for this spiritual strength in spiritual communion, as saints sought her, going to the torments and martyrdom.

As it has been for centuries, it has not always been or will be an opportunity to receive sacramental communion, but you can always and at any time strengthen yourself with spiritual communion. Then try to pray to God and call to Him from the bottom of your soul:

“I believe, sweet Jesus, that you are actually present in the forms of bread and wine. I love you with all my heart! I regret the sins that have offended you. Come to my heart, O my only desire! I fall into your embrace, I give myself to You (a), the only object of my love. Do not let me break away from you when I am! “

From the Diocese 3/17/20

From the Bishop’s Desk: 3-17-20

The Centers for Disease Control has given the recommendation to avoid social gatherings of 10 persons or more. For this reason, and to promote the health and safety of all, including clergy who must continue to attend to the spiritual needs of God’s people, we are implementing the following until further notice.

All public Masses are suspended. This ruling is in effect until further notice.
The parish’s Mass intentions must be satisfied. Mass must be celebrated privately.
The suspension includes devotions or other services which have the potential of drawing together crowds of people.
There should be no Communion Services or other types of gatherings such as communal recitation of the Rosary, which could gather crowds.
As there will be no Masses celebrated publicly on Palm Sunday, the Chrism Mass will NOT be celebrated publicly. The Bishop will celebrate the Mass from the Cathedral and the oils will be available for distribution at designated sites around the diocese.
Holy Week Services and Liturgies will not be celebrated publicly in the parishes. There are NOT to be any public celebrations, even outside.
Easter sacraments for RCIA candidates and catechumens are to be postponed.
The Mass of the Lord’s Supper, the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion, and the Easter Vigil will be celebrated by the Bishop in the Cathedral without a congregation and will be broadcast for the benefit of the faithful in their homes.
Also cancelled is the scheduled Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion.
Let us continue to pray for healing, strength and courage as we continue to serve God’s people in Brooklyn and Queens during this crisis. May Our Lady intercede for us.
