Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is a cause of great joy for very many people that this weekend both parish communities have the opportunity to return to public worship at Our Lady and St Patrick’s, Meadows.  For some time, we have longed to join in the celebration of the mass and other sacraments with family, friends and neighbours. Members of both parish communities, parish office staff, along with the clergy have been working hard to ensure that everything has been put in place to ensure that all of us feel as safe as we possibly can when we return to our parish church. Every parish and every church in the diocese are different so it is important that we observe the advice and guidelines that are given at Our Lady and St Patrick’s. I appreciate that many people may still feel anxious or concerned about participating in large gatherings of people. You may prefer to wait a few weeks before joining us for Sunday Mass and, in the meantime, continue to avail of our parish live streaming of the Mass via https://www.pscp.tv/ccolsp  Alternatively, you may wish to participate in a weekday mass on Wednesday when the number of people attending is fewer. If you feel unwell, please remain at home for your own safety and the well-being of others.

  

It is ESSENTIAL at this stage to book a place for Mass, Wednesday 10.00 am, Saturday Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm and Sunday Mass at 10.00 am by booking via https://massbooking.uk. Please go to the website and register your details and sign up. Once you have signed up, you can start a booking by first selecting the Church at which you want to attend Mass. (You can also save your favourite Churches to speed things up). You can then book one or more places at Mass. Please do not book any more than you need. Bookings for our church close 22 hours 00 minutes before the start of Mass. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. This would seem to be the fairest way of doing this with such restricted numbers. If the church is not full, there will be places available at the Mass on a first come, first served basis.

For this week only, if you do not have access to the internet, you can ring 0115 921 2964 on Saturday,18 July 2020 between 11 am and 12 noon to book a place for Mass this weekend. 

The new times of the Mass at Our Lady and St Patrick’s are:  Wednesdays at 10.00am, Saturdays Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm and Sundays Mass at 10.00 am.

(Please note there will be no live-streamed Mass at Corpus Christi at 11 am on Sundays)

God Bless…

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during the corona-virus pandemic:

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not ignore the prayers of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. 

“Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street. When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party. Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other. We think about when it will be all a memory but normalcy will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift. We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us. Every second will be precious. Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter. We will go back to laughing together. Strength and courage. See you soon!” Pope Francis

An Act of Spiritual Communion

It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion, which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion is an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and lovingly embrace him at a time or in circumstances when one cannot receive Him in sacramental Communion. The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

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 in 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
