Act of Spiritual Communion
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.
Thank you to all who continue to drop weekly envelopes to the church/parochial house. Your support is very much appreciated.
- Cheques: If you prefer to send cheques – please make them payable to Stamullen Julianstown Parish.
- If you wish to contribute to the church by bank transfer, you can e-mail your request to the parish at email@example.com and we will contact you.
- Parishioners can also donate through the parish website sjparish.ie and click the give button in the red box.
- We would like to advise Parishioners, that should they wish to place envelopes in the Post box at the Parish House, please be assured this box is monitored and overlooked by a security camera so it is very safe.
We are grateful to all who support our Parish especially in these difficult times when there is no Offertory Collection at Mass.
The Divine Mercy of Jesus is for sinners and the more of a sinner you are, the more you have a right to it. This is what Jesus told Sister Faustina (during her spiritual visions of Jesus) in Poland back in the early 20th Century. Sister Faustina was a contemporary of Pope John Paul II in Poland, back when he was known as Karol Wojtyla. She died before WWII started but, thanks be to God, she wrote everything down that Jesus told her. If you are looking for a spiritual director, and can’t find one, it is highly recommended that you read her book.
This is great reading while you are doing your holy hour, or just when you have 5 or 10 minutes to spare. The words of Jesus are bolded so there is no question as to what He thinks is important in spiritual direction. For sure, no Catholic is obliged to believe in personal revelation (as opposed to public revelation in the Bible), but the Church has determined that Saint Faustina’s visions are worthy of belief and there is nothing in them that runs counter to what the Bible says. If you were to take all of the sins ever committed on earth, they wouldn’t amount to a grain of sand in comparison to the ocean of the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ.
