Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

20th June 2021

In the midst of the questions that life gives rise to, when God seems to be sleeping, do we have the faith and trust that Jesus asks for?.  The love of the  Lord is everlasting and God will see justice done in his own good time.  If a believer is disappointed, it is because of lack of trust in God

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 

I believe that You are present in

the most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things

and I desire to receive You in

 my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment

receive you sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace you as if You were already there

and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You    Amen.
