CLOSING PRAYER

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 if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. AMEN


COMUNION ESPIRITUAL Jesús mío, creo firmemente que estás presente en el santísimo Sacramento del altar. Te amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo tenerte en mi alma. Ya que ahora no puedo recibirte sacramentalmente, ven por los menos espiritualmente a mi corazón. Como si ya hubieses venido, Te abrazo y me uno todo a ti: no permitas que jamas me aparte de ti. AMÉN


May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen

Que el Señor nos bendiga, nos proteja de todo mal y nos lleve a la vida eterna. Amén



REZO INICIAL:

En el Nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo AMEN…..


Señor, llena nuestras mentes y corazones con tu AMOR como la mañana llena el cielo.


¡Que se haga TU VOLUNTAD en nuestras vidas para que experimentemos paz y ALEGRÍA en el próximo año como FAMILIAS aprendiendo y creciendo, amándonos y sirviéndote con TODOS nuestros corazones y almas! AMÉN
