Vatican Confirms Papal Visit to Canada Program – July 24 – 29, 2022
A Visit of Healing, Hope & Reconciliation
The Vatican has released additional details regarding the Papal Visit to Canada, July 24-29, 2022.
The Pope’s visit will provide an opportunity for him to listen and dialogue with Indigenous
Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of residential schools in
Canada. The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion
Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada.
The Holy Father will travel within Alberta (based in Edmonton) from July 24-27, followed by a
visit to Quebec City and Ste. Anne-de-Beaupré, July 27-29. Pope Francis will visit Iqaluit,
Nunavut the afternoon of July 29 before returning to Rome.
Drawing on the theme, “Walking Together”, the Holy Father’s journey of reconciliation, healing
and hope includes visits to a former residential school, Indigenous pilgrimage sites, two public
Masses and a mix of private and public events. There will be tickets available (free) for a limited
number of events, all of which will be broadcast and accessible via livestream.
For ticket information, to volunteer, donate or learn more, visit www.papalvisit.ca (English) or
www.visitepapale.ca (French). Please continue to pray for the health of Pope Francis and for all
those engaged in the ongoing healing and reconciliation journey.
Prayer of Spiritual Communion
A PRAYER TO CHRIST THE KING
O Jesus Christ, I acknowledge you as universal King. All that has been made has been created for You. Exercise all Your rights over me. I renew my Baptismal Vows. I renounce Satan, his pomps and his works; I promise to live as a good Christian. And, in particular do I pledge myself to labor, to the best of my ability, for the triumph of the rights of God and of Your Church. Divine Heart of Jesus, to You do I offer my poor services, laboring that all hearts may acknowledge Your sacred kingship, and that thus the reign of Your peace be established throughout the whole universe.
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and desire to receive you. Since I cannot, at this moment, receive you in the Sacrament, come spiritually into my heart. I embrace you, for You are already there, and unite myself totally to you.
Never Permit me to be separated from you.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Suffer me not to be separated from Thee. From the malicious enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me. And bid me come unto Thee. That with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever.
For your reflection, homilies from our liturgies will be posted at the tab above, when they become available.
New Series "Called to Serve" Highlights Vocation Stories
In this new series “Called to Serve” we profile various people who God has called to serve the Church in many different ways – Deacons, Priests, Bishops, Religious Sisters and Brothers and Lay Men & Women. In each episode, we highlight the journey of what it’s like to be called by God, and discover the grace God grants to those He calls. In this first episode, we profile Bishop Marcel Damphousse, Bishop of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie, and Archbishop-Elect of the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. Bishop Damphousse shares when he knew that God was calling him to serve the Church as a priest, the joys and struggles he faced, and what he is looking forward to in his new appointment as Archbishop.
