17th Sunday after Pentecost Eucharist Service from St Paul's Cathedral
September 26th, 2020
This video connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for the 17th Sunday after Pentecost. As churches are currently closed for gathered worship, for many households ongoing access to online resources such as this continues to be important, and we are pleased to be able to offer them at this time. Bishop Richard preaches today on how we should carry the gospel from the church into our daily lives as Deacons in the wider church. Dean Susanna presides during the service. You may like to practice the tradition of ‘spiritual communion’ as you watch and listen to this Eucharist, and especially at the point of distribution of the Sacrament in this video. The following prayer may be helpful: O Lord Jesus Christ, through your tender mercy grant that as the hem of your garment, touched in faith, healed the woman who could not touch your body, so the soul of this your servant may be healed by like faith in you, whom I cannot now sacramentally receive. In union with the faithful at every altar-table in your Church I desire to be united with you, and pray that you will come spiritually into my heart. Let nothing ever separate me from your love, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
