SPIRITUAL COMMUNION


During this time when we may be deprived of attending Mass or Sacramental Communion we can make an Act of Spiritual Communion. We express our faith in Jesus Christ and his presence in the Eucharist. Spiritual Communion is an Act of Faith and an Act of Love. We desire to receive Christ, though we are unable, and we invite him to come into our heart.

Here is a form you could use.


My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love you above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you.

Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
