Prayer During Communion

 

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.

Amen.

 

Welcome to Sacred Heart of Jesus!

 

“¡Mi casa es su casa!” ‘My house is your house’

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

and

all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!

 

Did You Know...

...that the word ‘vacation’ is from the Latin ‘vacare’ – to ‘open a space’ ‘make a place for’?

 

The true meaning of the word ‘vacation’ is related to ‘making a place in our lives for God to fill’! Just as ‘recreation’ means to allow ourselves to be ‘re-created’!  Again, looking to God the Creator for that new creation!

 

The ‘sanctifying’ of time – the Seventh Day (‘sabbath’ – ‘sabbatical’) is the gift of our loving Creator for this ‘re-creation’ and for opening ourselves to experience more deeply the Presence of God.

 

Two recent Papal documents spoke about the ‘vital’ importance of observing the Lord’s Day. In 1998 Pope St. John Paul II wrote the Letter “Dies Domini” (‘The Lord’s Day’) and, drawing from the 4th Commandment (“Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy”), he spoke about a healthy rhythm of work and prayer, rest and exercise, quiet and activity, which is vitally important in establishing a healthy balance in a person’s life, as well as the life of the family! In 2015 Pope Francis wrote the Letter “Laudatio Si” (‘Praised be’ – from St. Francis of Assisi’s ‘Canticle of Brother Sun’) and drew the connection between a healthy lifestyle in a healthy environment, which again looks to the Divine plan for balance in a person’s life. Pope Francis shares that creation and recreation are joined in a way so that God continues the work of His creation in and through each of us!

 

Both of these Papal letters are well-worth the time to read and study, for the insights, drawn from Sacred Scripture, about ‘balance’ in all areas of our lives!

 

All of this speaks to a basic human need for ‘balance’, which can only be obtained and maintained in our relationship with God!

 

Ed Graveline and his collaborators in our St. Paul Street Evangelization Ministry, have a wonderful study, that they have been sharing, about the clinical data showing the long-term health benefits – physical and emotional – for those who attend Mass each week, and find their ‘balance’ in the environment of worship and ‘re-creation’! (Ask them for a copy!) The Methodist reformer, John Wesley, wisely remarked that “any recreation from which you have to recover, was not re-creation!”

 

Enjoy these weeks of summer ‘vacation’ before school begins, in order to be: re-created, re-newed, re-balanced, beginning with worship and renewal every Lord’s Day.

 

For your current and eternal health, make a place in the midst of all of the business of life, for God to fill you and draw you more and more into the ‘new Creation’!
