Blessed Mother’s Day

A message from Father Raj

Mother is the greatest incomparable TREASURE on earth.  One who has such a treasure, has everything, lacks nothing and is the richest.

The comfort of a mother’s lap, the assurance of her touch, the tenderness of her embrace, the serenity of her bosom, the energy of her embrace, the healing of her affection, the illumination of her guidance, the joy and satisfaction of her presence, the fulfillment of her accompaniment – all these are divine, mirror God’s own care.

One who truly loves the mother, cannot but love all.  She is the epitome, symbol, icon of love, sacrifice, benevolence and commitment.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

Thank you

Spiritual Communion Prayer

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.
