An Act of Spiritual Communion

What is spiritual communion? A spiritual communion is an earnest desire to receive Communion in reality, by which desire we make all preparations and thanksgivings that we would make in case we really received the Holy Eucharist.

Spiritual Communion is an act of devotion that must be pleasing to God and bring us blessings from Him.

Baltimore Catechism 912


SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

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.
