Year of St Joseph
The Diocesan “Year of St. Joseph” has been extended to December 8, 2021
St. Joseph – We need his intercession! Bishop Callahan is inviting all to celebrate a “Year of St. Joseph”. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pius IX’s decree naming St. Joseph Patron and Protector of the Universal Church. Several events, prayers, and novenas will be available throughout the year. Please follow the Diocesan website at diolc.org for further information and future events.
When we are unable to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist the Church encourages us to make an act of “spiritual communion,” where we unite ourselves to God through prayer. It is a beautiful way to express to God our desire to be united with him when we are unable to complete that union in the reception of Holy Communion.
Act of 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 into 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.
