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.

Six Little Stories with lots of Meanings
Once all the villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer, all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella. That is faith.
When you throw babies in the air, they laugh because they know you will catch them. That is trust.
Every night we go to bed without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but we still set the alarm to wake up. That is hope.
We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That is confidence.
We see the world suffering but still, we get married and have children. That is love.
On an old man's shirt was written a sentence, "I am not 80 years old; I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience". That is attitude.
Have a happy day and live your life like these six stories.
Remember - Good friends are the rare jewels of life, difficult to find and impossible to replace!!
28/11/19: Thanksgiving Prayer
On this day, may I put aside Cares that weigh on heart or mind, Allowing room for happiness And gratitude, for I am blessed. In the traditions handed down, May insightfulness be found, Recalling now the desire for peace Shared together at harvest feast. For loved ones here and gone before, I pray and yet one thing more: Lord, who showed us how to live, Much thankfulness to You I give. Amen.
