  • Spiritual Communion Prayer

    My Jesus, I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you more than anything in the world, and I hunger to receive you. But since I cannot receive Communion at this moment, feed my soul at least spiritually. I unite myself to you now as I do when I actually receive you. Amen.

  • Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic

    O Mary,
    you always shine on our path
    as a sign of salvation and of hope.
    We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
    who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
    You, salvation of the Olean People and the World,
    know what we need,
    and we are sure you will provide
    so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
    we may return to joy and to feasting
    after this time of trial.
    Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
    to conform to the will of the Father
    and to do as we are told by Jesus,
    who has taken upon Himself our sufferings
    and carried our sorrows
    to lead us, through the cross,
    to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

    Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
