    • A Prayer for 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 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                             ---------------------------         

      Year of St. Joseph,
      Patron of the Universal Church

      Dec. 8, 2020 - Dec 8, 2021 

      Pope Francis begins his Apostolic Letter  Patris Corde inaugurating the year of St Joseph with the following words:  "WITH A FATHER'S HEART: that is how Joseph loves Jesus,". The Holy Father closes the Letter with the following words and prayer: We need only ask St. Joseph for the grace of graces: our conversion.  Let us now make our prayer to him:

    Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
    Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
    To you God entrusted his only Son;
    in you Mary placed her trust;
    with you Christ became man.

    Blessed Joseph, to us too,
    show yourself a father
    and guide us in the path of life.
    Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
    and defend us from every evil. Amen.

    A Diocesan Consecration for a New Evangelization

    On December 12, 2019, the Diocese of Metuchen was consecrated to Jesus under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The intention for this consecration was to ask for the graces needed for a New Evangelization. By this consecration, Bishop James F. Checchio's prayer is that it will stir up an increased holiness of life, a renewed commitment to living the Gospel message to the full, and the enthusiastic willingness to share that message with others among the faithful.
