2nd Sunday in Advent

December 4th, 2020

Welcome to the 2nd Sunday of Advent from St Paul’s Cathedral Sale in this video. This week, the Cathedral Dean, Susanna Pain holds out the hope that we cherish through this season of Advent. Bishop Richard presides at the Eucharist. The tradition of ‘spiritual communion’ may be helpful as you watch and listen to this Eucharist, and at the point of distribution of the Sacrament you could say the following prayer: 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.
