In preparation for Mass:
Oh Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, My Mother, and Mother of St. Brendan Parish, please place in our hearts profound gratitude for the Holy Eucharist.
Prayer of Spiritual Communion:
(When Communion cannot be received or said during the day to increase the desire to receive the Eucharist.)
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. Amen.
Pope Francis has called for a global prayer marathon for the entire month of May, praying for the end to the pandemic. Thirty Marian shrines from around the world will take turns leading a daily live-streamed rosary at 12 p.m. (EST) on all Vatican media platforms. Each day has a different prayer intention related to the pandemic. The pope will open the month-long prayer May 1 and conclude it May 31. The list of shrines and prayer intentions can be found here. We will share the link to the daily rosary on the diocesan (@dioceseofcleveland) and Parish Life (@DOCParishLife) Facebook pages.
