Spiritual Communion - Prayer of St Alphonsus 

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.

I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,

come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you

now and forever.

Amen.

For Anyone Considering Suicide

Jesus says:

I have many things to say to those who are considering this act of self-harm. I love you. I see your pain. I understand that you long for relief from your anguish. Please, bring your anguish to Me. I can help you. You are so valuable to the Kingdom and I need you to help bring Me to others.


“How?” you say, in your great interior grief. “How could I possibly be helpful to Jesus and to others?”


I will tell you. Your pain is the pain of many in the world today. Many souls feel your grief, your hopelessness. Many carry heavy crosses of illness and addiction, loneliness and hopelessness, rejection and anxiety. Many of My children look into their future and see only more grief and pain and this takes their courage from them. Dearest friend, you must not do this. Do not look into tomorrow and expect today’s pain to be repeated. You are not certain of such an occurrence. You cannot be certain because I, God, could change your life during this day, today. You must remain in this day, in the present, because I have given you adequate grace to deal with your cross. It is only when you look into the future and think that your Jesus will send you no relief that you find life unmanage able. Understand this. Your life is only unmanageable if you put Me out of it. If you let Me into your heart, into your life, I will make it not only manageable, but joyful.....From the ARK Prayer group.

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales 

have recorded a talk with Professor Jim McManus, director of public health for Hertfordshire and a key contributor to the Bishops' Conference Healthcare Reference Group for the Catholic Church.  He worked on the bishops' guidelines for Catholics. In this recording, he talks about how we can all do our bit to combat the spread and keep ourselves safe - especially the most vulnerable members of our society. There is also guidance from the Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Vincent Nichols on how to respond to the crisis. CSAN and SVP have collaborated on producing guidance on volunteering and other options during the crisis. CSAN has created a dedicated coronavirus webpage which is constantly under development.
