Prayer for a Spiritual Communion
In these difficult times of Covid-19, with necessary restrictions and limited attendance, we hope that, whenever you are housebound, you will be able to participate online in the Celebration of Mass.
With regard to Holy Communion, when 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
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.
