Sunday Masses From a Distance
The Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the very heart of our Catholic life, and I realize that this directive will be a cause of great suffering. However, we observe this as our civic duty at this time, and offer this moment in sacrifice to God for the sake of all who are ill from the COVID-19 virus, as well as all front-line health care providers.
Making a Spiritual Communion
During this period the Church askes that our participation in the Eucharist be at a distance. When we cannot fulfill our obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday or Holy Day of Obligation, whether because of illness or bad weather, or some other reason outside of our control like this Covid-19 pandemic, it is good to make a Spiritual Communion. The basic elements of a Spiritual Communion are an Act of Faith; an Act of Love; a desire to receive Christ; and an invitation to Him to come into your heart.
While watching Mass on our computers, televisions or other means; or during our daily prayers, a Spiritual Communion may be made using this prayer:
