An Act of Spiritual Communion

Receive Christ through this Prayer!

Ideally one receives Christ in Holy Communion at Mass.  When that is not possible or Holy Eucharist not accessbile, one may make a "Spiritual Communion" with the prayer below -- An Act of Spiritual Communion.  One may receive Jesus in Spiritual Communion as often as desired.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You have already come,
I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You;
never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.
