Rev. Elie G. Kairouz
St. John Maron Church will be streaming live the Masses at the regular scheduled hours, Saturday and Sunday. We will attempt to stream the Mass on two facebook sites, the church site and the site of Tony Moussa. We hope to allow as many people to participate in the Mass and the Spiritual Communion. At the time of communion and as the priest is receiving communion, the faithful can participate in the Spiritual Communion praying the following prayer as offered in Bishop Mansour letter below. (the Prayer is translated to Arabic as well):
O Divine Ocean of Mercy and Compassion be with us in our time of trial and difficulties. Today I make an act of spiritual communion with you, the Life-Giving Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. At this time, I am not able to receive the sacred body and blood of my Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, but I choose to live in union with him and in the unity of the Holy Spirit. I offer my day, my daily life, my joys and sorrows to you, for those around me, and for the whole world. Be with us O life-giving Triune God, for we know that nothing in this world has power over us. O Lover of all people have mercy on us and on the whole world.
يا أَيُها المُحيطُ الإلهي من الرَحْمَةِ والرأفَة، كُنْ مَعَنا في وَقْتِ التَجْرِبَةِ والصُعوبات. اليومَ، إِني أَقومُ بعمل شراكةٍ روحيةٍ معكَ، يا واهِبَ الثالوثِ المعطي الحياة، أَيها الآبُ، والإبنُ والروحِ القُدُس. ففي هذا الوَقت، إني لا أستطيعُ أن أتناولَ جَسَدَ وَدَمَ ربي، إلهي ومخلصي يسوع المسيح المقدس، لكنني اختَرتُ أن احيا في اتحادٍ معه وفي وحدةِ الروحِ القُدُسْ. إني أقدِمُ يومي، وحياتي اليومية، أَفراحي وأَحزاني لَكَ، لِكُلِ مَنْ هو حَولي، وللعالمِ بأَسْرِهِ. كُنْ معنا أَيُها الثالوثُ الإِلهي المُعطي الحَياة، لأَننا نَعْلَمُ أَن لا شَيءَ في هذا العالمِ لَهُ قُوَةٌ عَلينا. يا مُحبَ البَشرْ إِرْحَمنا وارْحَم العالَم أَجمَع.
