Prayer of Spiritual Communion

Published on July 25, 2020

Prayer of Spiritual Communion: No particular prayer or formulary is required, though there are acts of spiritual communion in Catholic prayer
books to help focus a proper intention. One of the most popular is that composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori:
“My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire you with all my heart.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already in my heart
And unite myself to you completely.
Please do not let me ever be separated from you.” Amen.
