Pope Francis Lenten Message
Prayer Recited by the Pope
I prostrate myself at your feet, O my Jesus, and I offer You the repentance of my contrite heart, which abases itself in its nothingness in Your holy Presence. I adore You in the Sacrament of your Love, the ineffable Eucharist. I desire to receive You in the poor abode that my heart offers You; while waiting for the happiness of Sacramental Communion, I want to possess You in Spirit. Come to me, O my Jesus, that I may come to You. May your Love inflame my whole being in life and in death. I believe in You, I hope in You, I love You. Amen.

His holiness Pope Francis has made the decision not to celebrate the Chrism Mass during Holy Week this year on account of the Covid-19 virus. In solidarity with the Holy Father and along with other Dioceses our own Chrism Mass will therefore be postponed. The Chrism Mass is a very special celebration for us all, especially our priests as they renew their commitment to priestly service. Please keep them very specially in your prayers during the Wednesday of Holy Week.
Anyone wishing to live stream Holy Week from the Vatican can find the timetable of services on the Diocesean website.
