Special Prayers During This Time

Contrition

When the Sacrament of Confession is not readily available, we are still called to examine our consciences before the Lord and ask His forgiveness for any sins. The Church teaches that among the penitent’s acts, contrition holds the first place. Perfect contrition—that arising from love of God or charity—can “obtain forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1452).

Spiritual Communion

Spiritual Communion: When receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist is not possible, making acts of spiritual communion on Sundays and every day, especially in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, is a wonderful way to keep close to our Lord in the Eucharist and to express our desire for Him.

Keeping Jesus at the Center

Resources for families and individuals to keep Jesus at the center during this challenging time when access to the sacraments is limited.

Liturgy of the Hours

“Pray without ceasing” with the Church. The Liturgy of the Hours is a wonderful way to pray with the Church throughout the day. Various websites, resources, and apps are available. Visit iBreviary as an example.
