My dear parishioners, I have just come back into my office after having been in the front garden of St. James’ Church. After spending a short while in the church before the Blessed Sacrament, I took our Eucharistic Lord in the monstrance out into the garden, between the Shrine of Our Lady and the statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and moving in four directions each time I gave a blessing with the Sacred Host to the parish praying each time: Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison. I prayed that the Lord would grant conversion to souls, healing of ills, and protection from the virus. I pray that you will feel the power of His blessing in your homes and in your hearts.
With love and prayers,
For those who miss the beauty of Benediction please see below:
