In solidarity and with a little bit of resourcefulness, we can still keep the Lord’s Day:
1. Remotely attend Mass
Yes, we know. Attending mass online is a little odd. There’s no getting around it.
Check with your local parish if a livestream is available.
Salt + Light: Vidéotron (242) and with Bell (654)
2. Get dressed
You wouldn’t normally attend Mass in your pyjamas. Dressing as you would normally helps us to respect the Sacrament even though we are participating remotely.
3. Read the Mass Readings
The Laudate app is very handy. It has all the readings (and more) in both English and French.
4. Make a Spiritual Communion
We may not be able to receive the Eucharist physically, but we can still make an act of Spiritual Communion.
My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You.
5. Holy Hour
Beyond the mass, you can also spend a Holy Hour with Jesus through the internet.
Here’s a link to perpetual Adoration via Youtube
6. Read Scripture
For in the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven meets His children with great love and speaks with them (DV, 21)
If you’ve never opened a Bible, now is the best time to start. If you don’t know where to start, you can start with the Gospel according to Mark. It’s short and easy to understand.
