Spiritual Communion Prayer:

My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Most Holy Eucharist. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally in the Most Holy Eucharist, please come at least spiritually into my heart now. I spiritually embrace You and choose to unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You and Your Love. Thank You, Jesus! I love You! Amen.

Dear Lord, help us:

Be prepared, but not anxious;

Be aware, but not desperate;

Be vigilant, but not in fear;

Be joyful, but not clueless;

Be faithful, but not careless.

Lord, be our hope and strength through all trials.

Amen.

Catholic Exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger encourages the Faithful to recite this prayer for the spiritual aid needed for our Country and our government at this time (you can also pray for your family and others):

In His Name and by the power of His Holy Cross and Precious Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature. By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will. I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (our Country, my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Holy Cross to be disposed of as Thou sees fit. I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications. I place N. (our Country, person, place or thing) under the protection of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ which He shed for us. Amen. Please pray an Our Father for the needs of our Catholic Church and the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

 

Precepts of the Catholic Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2041-43):

1. You shall attend Holy Mass on Sundays and on Holy Days of Obligation and rest from servile labor. We must “sanctify the day commemorating the Resurrection of the Lord” (Sunday), as well as the principal feast days, known as Catholic Holy Days of Obligation. This requires attending Holy Mass, “and by resting from those works and activities which could impede such a sanctification of these days.”

2. You shall confess your sins at least once a year. We must prepare for the Eucharist by means of the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). This Sacrament “continues Baptism’s work of conversion and forgiveness.”

3. You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season. This “guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord’s Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.”

4. You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church. “The fourth precept ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepare us for the liturgical feasts and help us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.”

5. You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church. “The fifth precept means that the faithful are obliged to assist with the material needs of the Church, each according to his own ability.”
