​PRAYER TO MAKE A “SPIRITUAL COMMUNION”

Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Saint Thomas Aquinas defined “spiritual communion” as “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Holy Sacrament and a loving embrace as though we had already received Him. Saint Teresa of Avila wrote: “When you cannot receive Communion and cannot attend Mass, you can make a spiritual communion, which is a most beneficial practice; by it the love of God will be greatly impressed on you.”

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,
please come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you now
as if you were already there 
and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me
to be separated from you.
Amen

A Note From Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

Greetings to all of you and your loved ones.


We have begun a gradual reopening for Sunday and weekday Eucharist. While it is still not obligatory to attend Mass on Sunday, I would like to encourage those who are healthy to return to Sunday Mass as circumstances permit. By circumstances I mean the number of attending and your physical or emotional well being.


If fear, vulnerable health, or advanced age play any role in hesitating about Mass attendance, please stay home without feeling guilty about it. Join the Mass online from Saint Olaf at 11:30 AM or the Cathedral or the Pope’s Mass.


We ask you to sign up for Masses through our website just to know how many plan to attend and spread the attendance accordingly to 5:30 pm, 9:00 a.m. or 11:30 a.m.


I realize that we all have our favorite time for Masses but let us be flexible at this unusual time if your favorite Mass time is already filled by 40-50 people. If you signed up and something important came ahead of your intention to attend, please take your name off the list at least the day before.


While in the church, we are expected to sit 6 feet apart from those who are not members of the same household.


The reception of Holy Communion on the hand is still the best way to protect others from infection as droplets of saliva are the most common way of infection. The reception on the hand is a normative way of receiving the Lord in Holy Communion. Let’s do it reverently by bowing first and then holding out your hands, one on top of the other, expressing in this gesture our faith and reverence for the Lord. Please keep 6 feet distance during procession for Communion.


The Sign of Peace is being offered without touching but by bowing reverently to those who are around us.


You do not need to wear masks in the church except for the entry or exit when we usually get closer than the 6 feet. Thank you for your cooperation and willingness to go the extra mile for the sake and well being of us all.


A special “Thank You” to all who contribute to the parish at this difficult time. It helps enormously as we need to pay our bills. Our Online Giving has been very successful and I would like to encourage you to use it if you are able at this time to support Saint Olaf.


May the Blessings of Almighty, All-Loving God come upon you and your loved ones and remain with you always.

Father Andrzej
