An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love Thee above all things, and I desire Thee in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee.
Prayer during the Corona virus threat
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Reflection for 2 May
Reflection for 2 May 2021
5th Sunday of Easter
Fr. José Gerónimo Herrera
“O sing a new song to the Lord, for he has done wonders; in the sight of the nations he has shown his deliverance, alleluia.” This is the entrance antiphon for today's Mass. In the Mass prescribed by the Second Vatican Council (now called the "ordinary form" of Holy Mass), the entry antiphon is heard very rarely because if a hymn is sung at the start of mass, the entrance antiphon is suspended. At the Latin Mass (the mass before the Second Vatican Council is now called the "extraordinary form” of Holy Mass), the priest always recites the entrance antiphon at each Mass, and very often, the entrance antiphon encapsulates the deeper meaning of the Mass being celebrated that day. Today's entrance antiphon invites us to sing a new song. A song that reflects the wonders of the Lord. That is, a song of praise to the majesty of our God. And the reason for this new song is that we have witnessed Our Lord's victory over death and sin in His passion, burial, and above all, in His Resurrection! We sing because we are happy. And we are joyful because God has overcome darkness and evil! To God be given all glory and all honor. Alleluia
Reflección para 2 Mayo, 2021
Quinto Domingo de Pascua
Padre José G. Herrera
Canten al Señor un cántico nuevo, porque ha hecho maravillas y todos los pueblos han presenciado su vitoria. Aleluya. Esta es la antífona de entrada para la misa de hoy. En la misa prescrita por el Concilio Vaticano II (la “forma ordinaria” de la Santa Misa), se oye muy poco la antífona de entrada ya que, si se canta un himno al iniciar la misa, la antífona de entrada queda suspendida. En la misa en latín (la misa antes del Concilio Vaticano II, denominada la “forma extraordinaria de la Santa Misa), el sacerdote siempre recita la antífona de entrada en cada misa y muy a menudo, la antífona de entrada encapsula el sentido profundo de la misa que se está celebrando ese día. La antífona de la misa de hoy nos invita a cantar un cantico nuevo. Un cantico que refleje las maravillas del Señor. O sea, un canto de alabanza a la majestad de nuestro Dios. Y el motivo de este cantico nuevo es que hemos presenciado la victoria de Nuestro señor sobre la muerte y sobre el pecado por pasión, sepultura y, sobre todo, ¡en su Resurrección! Cantamos porque estamos alegres. ¡Y estamos alegres porque Dios ha vencido la muerte y el pecado! Sea dada toda gloria y todo honor a nuestro Dios. Aleluya
ca por su amor.
