Prayer 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. Amen.

ADORATION to the BLESSED SACRAMENT
Friday 7:30 pm to Saturday 9:00 am


Receiving the Eucharist means adoring Him whom we receive. Only in this way do we become one with Him, and are given, as it were, a foretaste of the beauty of the heavenly liturgy. The act of adoration outside Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself. Indeed, “only in adoration can a profound and genuine reception mature. And it is precisely this personal encounter with the Lord that then strengthens the social mission contained in the Eucharist, which seeks to break down not only the walls that separate the Lord and ourselves, but also and especially the walls that separate us from one another.”  Benedict XVI, Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis.


ANNOUNCEMENTS


May 26, 2024, Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

We love and adore the Three Divine Persons within our souls, when we live in a state of grace

Liturgy of the Word

Deuteronomy 4:32–34, The Lord is God in the heavens above and on earth below39–40 and there is no other.
Psalm 33 “Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.”
Romans 8:14–17 You received a Spirit of adoption, through whom we cry, “Abba, Father!”

Matthew 28:16–20 Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

In each of today’s readings, the speaker points out God’s remarkable uniqueness. Moses tells the people that no other god had ever done all the one-of-a-kind wonders that the LORD had done for them. Paul writes that through the Holy Spirit we have been adopted as God’s own children, a relationship with God that is like no other. In telling the disciples to make disciples of all nations, he commands them to baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, a new way of baptism. How fortunate we are to receive the grace we do from our unique God.

Question of the Week:  Who is someone I am strongly bonded with? How is our bond suggestive of those of the Trinity? Who is someone I’m barely bonded with? How can I strengthen and nurture that bond?

The Great Commission

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
Matthew 28:16–20
Friends, here is the curious thing about the Trinity: at one and the same time, it is the most extraordinary and the most ordinary of Christian doctrines, simultaneously the most inaccessible and the most obvious.
 
On the one hand, there is a highly developed, technical language regarding this great mystery. On the other hand, the most ordinary Catholic simply and regularly invokes the Trinity every time he crosses himself.

And then the extraordinary commission: “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgivThe Church receives its essential mission and identity as the bearer of the divine forgiveness. We have beeOur Gospel for Trinity Sunday is taken from the very end of Matthew’s Gospel. The risen and glorified Lord speaks to the new Israel of the Church, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” This is not an ordinary prophet speaking. This is the very Word of the Father, the very imprint of the Father’s being.n entrusted with speaking the shalom of Jesus to a fallen and hopeless world. But it’s not cheap grace that we share. We participate in Jesus’ mission of showing his wounds as well. The Church refuses to explain sin away or make excuses for it or call it by another name. en them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” Jesus’ mercy is communicated to his disciples, who in turn are sent to communicate it to the world.

Jesus then tells them to go forth and to do the work of gathering in, of drawing people into the very dynamics of the divine life. Now, how all of this fits together theoretically is indeed a fascinating question, but we should never allow the arcane language of theology to obscure the revolutionary meaning of the Trinity: it is a summons to mission, a call to action. ~ Bishop Barron

Protecting God’s Children

The Catholic Diocese of Spokane is committed to providing a safe environment for all children, young adults, and vulnerable adults in our care by cultivating a culture of awareness and vigilance. The work of ensuring the safety of those entrusted to our care is a challenging undertaking. Each year our children and young people participate in the VIRTUS education program, Empowering God’s Children, through which parents, teachers, catechists, and youth ministers give children and young people the tools they need to protect themselves from those who might harm them. 

All clergy, all employees, and all volunteers who work with children and young adults participate in the VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children program and update their knowledge annually through online modules. These adults also read and sign our diocesan Code of Conduct and Commitment, Disclosure Statement, and have a criminal background check every five years. All clergy and employees receive Sexual Harassment training, and all clergy and volunteers who work in homebound ministries complete Vulnerable Adult training. 

Diocese of Spokane parishes and ministries comply with all safe environment policies and procedures.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) audits our safe environment programs annually.  Bishop Daly announced that the Diocese passed its 2020 audit; click here for audit results

As of June 30, 2020, 7,555 children, youth, clergy, deacons, seminarians, teachers, staff, and volunteers have been educated and 2,710 clergy, deacons, seminarians, teachers, staff and volunteers have passed criminal background checks.

The Diocese is committed to providing healing resources and therapy for those who have experienced sexual abuse and their families. Please visit the links below for more information.

What Is Divine Mercy?

Divine Mercy has been called “the greatest grassroots movement in the history of the Catholic Church” and has changed millions of lives. But what is it?

The following is drawn from Fr. Michael Gaitley’s book Divine Mercy Explained:





Divine Mercy, in General

Divine Mercy gets to the heart of Sacred Scripture. In fact, as the Catechism of the Catholic Church says, “The Gospel is the revelation in Jesus Christ of God’s mercy to sinners” (1849). Right there: That summarizes it. Divine Mercy is the Gospel. It’s the good news. Click to read further.


Litany to the Blessed Host

O Blessed Host, in golden chalice enclosed for me,
That through the vast wilderness of exile I may pass
Pure, immaculate, undefiled;
Oh, grant that through the power of Your love
This might come to be.

O Blessed Host, take up Your dwelling within my soul,
O Thou my heart’s purest love!
With Your brilliance the darkness dispel.
Refuse not Your grace to a humble heart.

O Blessed Host, enchantment of all heaven,
Though Your beauty be veiled
And captured in a crumb of bread,
Strong faith tears away that veil.
