Acts 14:19-28; Psalm 145; John 14:27-31
In the first reading Paul and Barnabas though suffering continued to preach. What can separate us from the love of God? In the gospel, Jesus says do not be afraid. A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears. Lord let your peace reign in our hearts.
Let us pray
Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
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.
