ST. PATRICK RE-OPENING - PHASE ONE
The Sacred Heart Novena of Masses at Visitation
Visitation Monastery will broadcast The Sacred Novena of Masses on their website, June 11th through June 19th.
The celebrant will be Rev. Joseph Gibino and each Mass will include the Sacred Heart Novena and the Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.

In this time of crisis, the pope said the Catechism clearly teaches that one can draw near to God's forgiveness, even without a priest at hand.
“If you can’t go to a priest for confession, speak to God. He’s your Father. Tell Him the truth. ‘Lord. I did this and this and this. Pardon me.’ Ask His forgiveness with all your heart, with an act of contrition, and promise Him, ‘Afterward I will go to confession.’ You will return to God's grace immediately. “

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
In this time of need, all the faithful are encouraged to seek together the maternal intercession of
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
