Prayer for a Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present
in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love You above all things
and I passionately desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul
so that I may unite myself wholly to You
now and forever. Amen.
based on a prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori
What is spiritual communion?
When we are unable to attend Holy Mass, wish to refrain from receiving Holy Communion, or are unable to receive Holy Communion, then we can make a Spiritual Communion.

Even though some may not receive ‘sacramental’ Communion, all are united in some way by the Holy Spirit. The traditional idea of ‘spiritual’ Communion is an important one to remember and reaffirm. A deep spiritual communion is possible even when we do not share together the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ. (cf. Celebrating the Mass 212)
