Please join Father, during Mass, after making your Spiritual Communion by saying this prayer:
(Copy it and keep it by you)
"My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You are already there, I embrace You and unite myself wholly to You; do not let me ever be separated from You. Amen."

From Deacon Chris
Today Pope Francis is spending some time in prayer reflection on his priesthood. Bishop Paul has invited his priests to join with him in an act of unity with the Pope. The Chrism Mass is deferred to September at the earliest.
Whilst there is no washing of the feet tonight, we do remember what our Lord did at the Last Supper. He instituted the Holy Eucharist. He gave us his Body and Blood in the form of bread and wine and told us to do this in memory of him. Candidates for reception into the Catholic Church are having to wait a bit longer than anticipated.
We are a Eucharistic Community. We are one body and Christ is our Head. Social distancing may keep us apart physically but nothing keeps us apart spiritually because ‘All over us all the Spirit is moving.
