Info on:   The Care of Souls and Forgiveness of Sins during this Pandemic

Cardinal Pizcenza writes:     Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452)

In reminding all parishioners of this recourse, please also remind them that perfect contrition:

rises from the love of God, who has been grievously offended

requires the sincere desire for forgiveness

requires the ardent commitment to receive the sacrament of reconciliation when available

Cardinal Piacenza also addresses the recourse of a Plenary Indulgence offered

by the Apostolic Penitentiary:      The gift of special indulgences is granted to the faithful  suffering from COVID-19 disease, commonly known as coronavirus, as well as to health care workers, family members and all those who in any capacity, including through prayers, care for them.

As you know, an Indulgence is “the expression of the Church’s full confidence of being heard by the Father when – in view of the Christ’s merits and, by his gift, those of Our Lady and the saints – she asks him to mitigate or cancel the painful aspect of punishment by fostering its medicinal aspect through other channels of grace” (Saint John Paul II, General Audience, September 29, 1999).

It is asked that parishioners are reminded of the availability of this Plenary Indulgence which “removes all the temporal punishment due to sin.” (CCC. 1471).     This Plenary Indulgence is

granted to the faithful suffering from coronavirus, who are subject to quarantine by order of the health authority in hospitals or in their own homes if, with a spirit detached from any sin, they unite spiritually through the media to the celebration of Holy Mass, the recitation of the Holy Rosary, to the pious practice of the Way of the Cross or other forms of devotion, or, if at least they will recite the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer and a pious invocation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, offering this trial in a spirit of faith in God and charity towards their brothers and sisters, with the will to fulfill the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion and prayer according to the Holy Father’s intentions), as soon as possible.

Spiritual Communion Prayer by Saint Alphonsus Liguori

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

*************************************************************************

Word of Inspiration & Wisdom from the Saints:

From the Confession of Saint Patrick, bishop

Through me many peoples have been reborn in God

I give unceasing thanks to my God, who kept me faithful in the day of my testing.  Today I can offer him sacrifice with confidence, giving myself as a living victim to Christ, my Lord, who kept me safe through all trials.  I can say now:  Who am I, Lord,  and what is my calling, that you worked through me with such divine power? You did  all this so that today among the Gentiles I might constantly rejoice and glorify your name wherever I may be, both in prosperity and in adversity.  You did it so that, whatever happened to me, I might accept good and evil equally, always giving thanks to God.  God showed me how to have faith in him for ever, as one who is never to be doubted.  He answered my prayer in such a way that in the last days, ignorant through I am, I might be bold enough to take up so holy and so wonderful a task, and imitate in some degree those whom the Lord had so long ago foretold as heralds of his Gospel, bearing witness to all nations.
