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.

Father Nicholas Nelson: Building the domestic church: What we can influence in life

Recently, I have been considering the distinction between our “Circle of Influence” and our “Circle of our Concern.” Our circle of influence is that which we can influence, control, or change. My circle of concern is that which I am conscious of and concerned about, but really can’t do much about. The closer to myself something is, the higher degree of influence I have over it, while the further away it is, the less influence I have.

Father Richard Kunst: Let the dead bury their dead — really?

In the year 2000, my last two grandparents died, first my paternal grandfather in February and then my maternal grandmother a few months later. In both instances I happened to be in Europe and was unable to see them in their final hours, which I very much regret. When my dad’s dad died, they were able to hold off and delay the funeral for a few days so that I was able to be present, and I actually presided over his funeral. When my mom’s mom died later that year, they buried her the next day, so I was obviously not able to be there for her funeral.
