Confession When A Priest is not available
This habit of returning home “takes flesh in the   Sacrament of Reconciliation”, the Pope explained.     “I know that many of you go to confession before Easter… Many will say to me: ‘But Father… I can’t leave the house and I want to make my peace with the Lord. I want Him to embrace me… How can I do that unless I find a priest?’. Do what the catechism says. It’s very clear. If you don’t find a priest to go to confession, speak to God.  He’s your Father.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
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.

Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
