Message from Fr. KK

Spiritual Communion
 
When unable to receive Holy Communion, it is a pious practice to make a Spiritual Communion. Say the  following prayer of St.Francis:
 
I believe that You, O Jesus, are in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You and desire You. Come into my heart, I embrace You.. Oh ,never  leave me. May the burning and most sweet power of your love, O Lord Jesus Christ, I beseech You, absorb my mind that I may die through love of Your love, who were graciously pleased to die through love of my love.

After all, he says, the podcast, put out by the Catholic publisher Ascension Press, is pretty simple: a few words of introduction, three readings from the Bible, and a few words of explanation, around 20 minutes all told.
