HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY: FIFTH WEEK OF EASTER

HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY: FIFTH WEEK OF EASTER

Acts 15:1-6; Psalm 121; John 15:1-8


In the first reading, Paul and Barnabas resorting  to the Apostles to resolve the circumcision debate shows an image of a vine and its branches. In the gospel, Christ says that he is the true vine and that we are his  branches. The greater our union with Christ the greater our  fruitfulness.    

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.

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.
