Spiritual Communion

In difficult times like these, when you are unable to attend Mass due to the coronavirus, you can still reach out to Christ Jesus in the Eucharist, by making a spiritual communion in prayer.

A prayer of spiritual communion with Jesus can be made in a matter of seconds, and you can even repeat throughout the day. The following are two beautiful, classic prayers of spiritual communion, asking the Lord to nourish our hearts with His love.

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.

Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen.
