Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
17th January 2021
Week of prayer for Christian Unity begins Monday 18th
The call of God comes in different ways. To Samuel it came by night, mysterious, uncertain. To Andrew it came as an invitation from Jesus 'Come and see'. Whatever our vocation (and we all have one) our response must always be 'Speak Lord .Your servant is listening'
Prayer for Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in
the most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things
and I desire to receive You in
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.
The Sunday Obligation
In the current emergency, all are dispensed from the obligation to physically attend Sunday Mass.
You may fulfil your obligation by attending Mass on any day of the week.
