Prayer for a Spiritual Communion

‹ back to previous page

Date(s) - 24 Jul 2020 until 6 Oct 2020
1:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In these difficult times, many of our parishioners are unable to attend Mass on a regular basis.  Some are understandably nervous because of the coronavirus and some are confined to their homes for other reasons.  We hope that the new Webcam Service, on which Mass is being streamed from the Parish Church, will help you to participate from a distance.

With regard to Holy Communion, many of you are missing the possibility of receiving the Sacrament in the usual way.  You may wish to use the following prayer as an alternative.


Act of Spiritual Communion

St. Alphonsus Liguori

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.
