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. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as being already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Radio Maria England presents its new series on ENGLISH MARIAN SHRINES.
Catholic internet radio station, RADIO MARIA ENGLAND, recently launched its new autumn schedule. Among its new programmes is ENGLISH MARIAN SHRINES. Presenter, Lucia Watson, introduces various holy Marian Shrines in our country. Yes, you’ve heard of Lourdes, yes you’ve heard of Walsingham, but DID YOU KNOW of the many other shrines scattered throughout our country?
The last remaining shrine to be featured in this series will be on this Saturday 14th Nov from West Grinstead, where Geoff Callister, who usually gives the pilgrims various talks about the Shrine, will give us a fascinating history of the secret chapel located in the Priest’s House.
Listen online via our website this Saturday, 14th Nov at 8.30pm:
