**Days marked “NO MASS” simply mean that Mass is not being offered publically. However, on that day, a Mass would still be offered privately to which one may unite, with the Priest’s own, their daily prayers and intentions. A spiritual communion is recommended on days one cannot assist publically at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
**A monthly schedule of Masses is available in the bulletin which can be accessed by clicking on “Monthly Bulletin” in the “Pages” list on the upper right side of the web page.
PRAYER BEFORE A CRUCIFIX
BEHOLD, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope, and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm desire of amendment, whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious wounds, having before mine eyes that which the Prophet David spoke of Thee, O good Jesus: They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones. Amen.
[If the preceding prayer is said before a Crucifix: Plenary indulgence, once a day, after Confession and Communion and prayer for the Pope’s intention (e.g. at least once each: Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory Be)]
