Dear Volnutt, I know someone who is communed with the reserved Sacrament from Holy Thursday which is used for communion of those who due to illness or disability and can not attend Liturgy.  Love, e.
I'm sorry, I don't see your point.

Sorry.  With a particle from the reserved Sacrament this person may receive Holy Communion without any fear of wine causing an alcoholic relapse since the reserved Sacrament is thoroughly dried.  Usually when the sick are communed, the reserved Sacrament is mixed with a little non-consecrated wine.  But for this situation, a little hot water is used instead.  Love, e.

Dearest, do not be afraid, the One you seek is also seeking for you. He will teach you how to love, how to live within His house. even as you come face to face with your cross, the Comfortor will come, He will be there, do not be afraid.may I dare to suggest a time of service? volenteer work, at hospitals , nursing homes, soup kitchens, or wherever there is the need? for love heals many that practice her.May the Lord bless you with what you need at this time, His will be done! Lord Jesus Christ,Son of the Living God , have mercy on us!
O Christ Save us! Lord Jesus protect us!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

I wish I could volunteer. I'm too busy getting ready for a busy semester right now. Thanks, though.

 I understand, forgive me, may God help you with your work . may He give you the initiative to start what needs to be started, the strength to finish what is started, the grace to do it all well and may the Lord bless the labor of your hands. Amen,Lord have mercy!
