Live-streamed Mass and Spiritual Communion
Live Streaming of Mass
Several Parishes within the Archdiocese live-stream Mass each weekend. We have compiled a list of those that currently do so, along with links to each stream.
During this time, Catholics are encouraged to make a spiritual communion. An excellent prayer sheet has been produced by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, including a prayer for spiritual communion. Click here to view/download.
During the week Pope Francis also offered the following prayer for Catholics wishing to make a spiritual communion:
At your feet, O my Lord Jesus
I prostrate myself and offer you repentance of my contrite heart,
which is humbled in its nothingness and in your holy presence.
I adore you in the sacrament of your love.
I desire to receive you into the poor dwelling that my heart offers you.
While waiting for the happiness of sacramental communion, I wish to possess you in spirit.
Come to me, O my Jesus, since I for my part, am coming to you.
May your love embrace my whole being in life and death.
I believe in you, I hope in you, I love you. Amen
