Message from St Mary's Drumlish

Once again we are faced with lockdown and hence no public celebration of Mass.  It is a difficult and frustrating time for those who love to attend the community celebration of Mass and also for the priests who celebrate without their congregation.  Our live streaming of Mass goes some way towards helping us worship and keeping in touch with our wider faith family.  Its important that we don't lose heart or give up, but look forward in hope to the day when we can come together again as family to celebrate our faith and be nourished as a family with the Word of God and the Body of Christ.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that you are present
in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you have already come,
and unite my self wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen.

A Prayer in the Year Specially Dedicated to St. Joseph by Pope Francis

Hail,
Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
To you God entrusted his only Son,
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen. 
St. Joseph, pray for us.
