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.
*Update on confession: For the week of May 25th, we will celebrate the sacrament after morning Mass each day (including Saturday at 9:00 am) and on Wednesday night. We will NOT hold Confession on Saturday at 3:15 pm.

In addition to announcements about parishes in our listening area along Florida’s Space and Treasure coasts, our locally produced, Treasures of Faith program at 11:00 am weekdays, highlights the Truth, Beauty and Goodness of our Catholic faith, often addressing how it is lived and experienced in our local community. Friday’s program is devoted to Apologetics where two pastors from the Diocese of Orlando answer questions from listeners about the Catholic Faith via email ([email protected]) and calls (321-757-7705).

Bishop Noonan has highlighted an important aspect of Church teaching: “In case of physical or moral impossibility in which a person cannot personally go to confession to a priest, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Code of Canon Law, a person is to make an Act of Contrition with a sincere desire to go to confession as soon as it is possible” (CCC 1484; CIC 960).
The Catechism further clarifies, “Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution (through Anointing or Reconciliation), it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness and accompanied by a firm resolution to, when possible, to take part in the sacraments, obtains the forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC 1452).”
