Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
Seventh Sunday of Easter Year B
Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:
‘Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name,
so that they may be one like us. While I was with them, I kept those you had given me true to your name.
I have watched over them and not one is lost except the one who chose to be lost, and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you and while still in the world I say these things to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world. I am not asking you to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth.’
An Act of Spiritual Communion for those who cannot attend Mass (St Alphonsus Liguori)
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.
(Recommended by The Catholic Bishops' Conference (CBCEW) for use when we cannot attend Mass)
