special message from father don:
Spiritual Communion: Throughout lockdown periods, St. Philip's will offer the practice of Spiritual Communion on most Sunday mornings. The prayer, said by the community, is as follows: I worship and adore you, Lord Jesus Christ, present in the Holy Sacrament and in your people, who are gathered in spirit. In this moment I join with them to receive you in my heart, and in our community. May you, enthroned on the altar, be now enthroned in my heart; may you, present in bread and wine, feed and renew my soul; may you, who give yourself to us again, fill us with grace, and heavenly blessing. Even as I am fed, may my hunger for you and for your reign of justice and peace increase, that I may, with your Spirit, work for that day when your reign shall come on earth as it is heaven. Amen. 'Spiritual Communion' has a long tradition in the Anglican Church, and indeed in the larger Christian tradition. In the Middle Ages, Saint Thomas Aquinas wrote that 'Some eat this sacrament spiritually ere they receive it sacramentally . . . from desire of receiving the sacrament itself'. The practice of spiritual communion is found in the office of the Communion of the Sick in our 1962 Book of Common Prayer (p. 584), a rubric retained from the Archbishop Cranmer's first Prayer Book (1549) and subsequent revisions. We believe that this current Covid-19 global pandemic, and the governmental and health restrictions that we are currently experiencing, would certainly constitute a "just impediment" to receiving the sacrament "by mouth.
