Why would our Bishops be so eager to take that from us during this time we need it's consolation the most...?
Excellent ? I have been wondering the same. All them just fell in line w the government.
WOW. how moving.
Tradition holds that praying the Chaplet of Saint Michael the Archangel bestows the grace of an escort of an angel from each of the nine celestial choirs to the reception of Communion. The Kingdom of Heaven being at hand: way better than the movies.
Beautiful and inspiring
fantastic, we miss the miracle of the mass.
Just as the angels and Saints are present to the Eucharist,so may we be spiritually present even if deprived of a physical presence in the eucharist as now. Remember how often the Saints have warned us against thinking that a mere physical presence at the eucharist is enough in these times the eucharist is still being said and none of us is excluded from the all important spiritual presence to the eucharist.
I cried the first time I saw this and I just cried again. The beauty of our faith.
I hope I can imagine all those angels and saints surrounding the altar during the celebration of the Eucharist when I go to daily Mass toorow.
