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.

In addition to calls for nationwide demonstrations, some have called for disruption of church services and personal intimidation of Supreme Court justices.
