Fr. Alex Harb "Pray, hope, and don't worry." St. Padre Pio Liturgy Intention- Some ideas about participating in liturgy on video Show up early and pray together as a family. Set up a small prayer corner or table, let children help decorate. Light a candle. Consider "dressing up" for the occassion particularly parents and older children. Make a spiritual act of Communion. Follow along in the included text to be sent. Afterwards have a meal together and talk about the readings. Spiritual Act of 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.
