Prayer for Spiritual Communion



My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament.


I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul.


Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,


Come to me Lord, come at least spiritually into my heart,


and unite my soul completely to You.


Never let me be separated from You.

Extract from the Statement of the Irish Catholic Bishops` Conference on the publication of the Framework Document for a return to the public celebration of Mass and the Sacraments

“At the end of the month we hope to slowly and cautiously resume public worship in our churches, knowing that it can only happen in a limited way.  We will still need patience, perseverance and self-sacrifice.  The prescriptions contained in this Framework Document will only be effective if we have the generous support of volunteers who will help to plan, implement and manage the transition back to full parish life and the celebration of the sacraments. In this regard we appeal particularly to the younger members of our parishes.  Their energy, creativity and enthusiasm are gifts that our communities need now more than ever, since some of our older generation may be unable to offer their normal help in the current circumstances”.

The Framework Document for a return to the public celebration of Mass and the Sacraments is available on the Dublin Diocesan website.

Please contact Fr. Peter Briscoe if you are available to help with our transition back to full Parish life here in Milltown. We urgently require parishioners to volunteer for stewarding and cleaning duties.
