Acts 5:27-33; Psalm 33; John 3:31-36
In the gospel St John give us the principle for eternal life. He writes whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever disobeys the son will not see life (Jn.3:36). Peter in the first reading practiced this principle. He says, we rather obey God than any human authority (Acts 5:29). Beloved, do not be afraid of those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him who can destroy both. Believe and Obedience are keys for eternal life.
An 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.
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
