Mass with prayers for healing

Mass with prayers for healing


What is a Mass with prayers for healing?

At this Mass we are begging God to heal people according to His will. The center point of this celebration is the Mass (we have to remember that all Masses are healing and that God in any Mass can heal people). What is different about this Mass is that we are intentionally praying for people who are suffering physically, psychologically, and spiritually. We are asking God to heal the wounded.

What is involved besides Mass?

At the end of the Mass, we have a Eucharistic Procession with Jesus in the Monstrance. He travels through the church blessing people like when He walked through Galilee and Jerusalem. Our God comes into our midst to heal. When the Procession is completed with Benediction (a blessing from Jesus with the Monstrance), the priests are available to pray over people individually.

There are priests available in the confessionals to hear confessions as well.

Why should I attend?

Many people have been healed over the years. Some go to confession and that is the healing the Lord wants to give them. Others go to the priests for individual prayers and are healed physically. One man who was Lactose intolerant who was healed. A Sister had her hearing restored. God works through His priests to bring the healing that He desires. We never know how the Lord is going to work on this night, but it is always beautiful!

Come and pray for healing! Maybe you don’t think you need to be healed and yet are feeling a call to attend to intercede for those who will be there that night. What a great gift our Lord gives us! Invite friends and come.

Who can attend?

Everyone. Adults. Children. Catholics. Non-catholics. YOU!
