Prayer Helps

There are a variety of prayers and reflections that can bring us closer to God and to us as the parish family of St. Walter:

Since all of us are unable to receive holy communion and desire it so much, one of the great saints of the church, St. Alphonsus Liguori, offers this prayer of spiritual communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most blessed sacrament.

I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace you as if you are already there, and unite myself wholly to you.  Never permit me to be separated from you.
