Memorial of St Catherine of Siena

Acts 8:1-8, Ps.66, John 6:35-40

One basic theme in today’s first reading is persecution. Severe persecution came against the Church in Jerusalem. Persecution for Christians is not a possibility, it’s a promise, it’s not a maybe, it’s a surely! So, Jesus tells us in the gospel that Christianity is not our will but the will of God. Catherine of Siena accepted this will suffered for it and today she is a saint. Anyone who accepts the will of the Father will be persecuted before he gains eternal relevance. St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us

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.
