XXIX Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Padre Josh Swallows
We are blessed to see so many of you return to Daily Mass. This has been also reflected in our progressively declining numbers in our online viewership. With that in mind, we will no longer record our Daily Masses to post online. This will allow our Parish Staff to resume some of the duties that had been set aside due to the pandemic.
Since the Bishop Noonan’s dispensation is still in place, we will continue to record and post one of our English Sunday Masses and the Spanish Sunday Mass. We pray you and your family are staying safe. God Bless.
We ask you to please visit the Diocese of Orlando website or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/orlandodiocese/ or https://stjamesorlando.org/ to celebrate Mass at St. James Cathedral. Livestream Mass is available daily from St. James Cathedral, the English Mass is celebrated at 9:00 am and the Spanish Mass is celebrated at 10:00 am, but the Masses can be accessed anytime during the day for your convenience. Stay safe and God Bless.
Catholics can make an Act of Spiritual Communion It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion means uniting one’s self in prayer with Christ’s sacrifice and worshiping Him in His Body and Blood.
The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.
An 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.
