Form of Spiritual Communion, by St. 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 in 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.
The Southwest is known for our warm welcomes and heartfelt hospitality! Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish has been extending this same warm welcome for over 140 year, since pioneer missionary, Fr. Antonio Jouvenceau, came to Tombstone, to minister to the need of those flocking into the area following the discovery of rich silver deposits!
Although the popular concept of Tombstone, largely shaped by Hollywood, portrays our community as centered in the bars and gambling dens of Allen Street and shadowed by violence, there is another and much more enduring story, of pioneer men, women and families, who sought to build a lasting community, founded on the values of the Gospel!
That is our story, and it is a story which continues to be written, not in historic re-enactments, but in the hearts and lives of people who call Tombstone home.
Our Parish is the “Mother Church” of Cochise County and has been instrumental in planting new parishes in the surrounding area. We continue to be part of the global Mission of the Church, and have entered our third century filled with the joy and the hope of those who are experiencing new life in Christ!
We would cordially invite you to experience that new life with us, and to know that the One who extends the invitation, “My house is your house!” is, in fact, the Lord!
Looking forward to welcoming you!
FR. GREG ADOLF and FR. ROBERT NESKE
all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!
DID YOU KNOW. . .
...that Sacred Heart of JESUS Parish – that we – are ‘essential’ to the spiritual and physical well-being our whole community?
We have been hearing a lot recently about ‘essential services’ and ‘essential workers’, and ‘essential providers’. . .
Think for a moment if we were not here. Where would neighbors in need be able to go, if our Parish St. Vincent de Paul Society was not there, distributing not only material goods, but the ‘essential’ for life: HOPE? Where would people find encouragement and support, when experiencing the ‘storms of life’? Where would visitors and travelers find the comfort of the Sacraments? Where would struggling believers find the companionship and encouragement to stay faithful? Where would the ‘sin sick’ go to find relief and the healing of forgiveness? Where would I go to grow in the ‘essential’ for life: LOVE? Where would children be given the experience of ‘growing their faith’ in a community of love and acceptance? Where would the Truth of God be sounded clearly and fearlessly to the confused and spiritually muddled? Where would the opportunities to care and share be presented to those wanting to make a difference in this world? Where would the near Presence of God be experienced, tabernacled among us, and giving Himself to us as living Bread? Where would I go to experience the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if our Parish was not here? Where would I go to pray with and be strengthened by others in the ‘essential’ for life: FAITH, if our Parish was not here?
Imagine for moment, Tombstone without Sacred Heart of JESUS, as the spiritual heart of this community and as your spiritual home.
If you can’t imagine it, then what are you doing to make our Parish as strong and vibrant, as welcoming and encouraging, as alive in the Spirit, as God intends for us to be?
Perhaps one of the lessons that we are supposed to learn from the year of pandemic, is what really is essential in our lives, that which we can’t imagine being without for even one day! And what is essential is our relationship with God, AND this Community of Faith, where that relationship is strengthened, renewed, celebrated and shared!
