RECEIVE A BLESSING WHILE LISTENING TO CATHOLIC SPIRIT RADIO
During quarantine, we know that you may be missing the blessing you usually get at Mass. The wonderful late Father Andrew Apostoli reminded listeners on Sunday Night Prime a few years ago that priests and deacons can give blessings to listeners through either radio or television. The blessing holds significantly higher value if it’s a LIVE program.
Make sure you are listening to as much of the program as possible, especially the Mass so that you don't miss the blessing. The blessing usually occurs in the final 10 minutes of programs, but the exact time of the blessing during Mass may vary depending on the length of the Mass. The blessing only takes a few seconds. As usual, just do the sign of the cross at the end after he finishes the blessing.
Here’s some programs heard on Catholic Spirit Radio that give blessings.
6AM Monday-Friday: Morning Glory
7AM Every day: Daily Mass
2PM Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday: Open Line
7PM Wednesday: EWTN LIVE

We posted the prayer for spiritual communion. You can recite it as often as you want. Similar to eating the Holy Eucharist, this spiritual communion prayer strengthens us.
