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

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING FOR SAINT KATERI TEKAKWITHA 

God our Father, Whom Kateri Tekakwitha liked to call the Great Spirit, We thank you for having given us this young woman as a model of the Christian life. Despite her frailness and her community’s resistance, she bore witness to the presence of Christ. With her companions, she drew close to the elderly and to the sick. Every day, she saw in nature a reflection of your own glory and beauty. Grant that by her intercession we may always be close to you, more sensitive to the needs of those around us, and more respectful of creation. With her, we shall strive to discover what pleases you and endeavor to accomplish it until that day you call us back to you.
Amen!

WORDS OF WISDOM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT


“Good day to you everyone, brothers and sisters and visiting pilgrims, God gives us many gifts. However, he gives us four special gifts. They are respect, trust, obedience and honesty. Remember these four gifts, If we lose these gifts and abuse them there is no space in our heart to accept the rest of the gifts that God has for us because we ignore Jesus’ mercy and love. To get God’s wisdom, never abuse these four gifts.’
( Sanctuary of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Mission of Saint Francis-Xavier) 

WORDS OF WISDOM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT


”Do not let the past stumble upon your presence.
As Jesus’s living water washes away our fear and sins,
put our past worries in Him and let it flow away …. ‘
