    Plenary Indulgence Options for the Year of St. Joseph - The Fathers of Mercy

    How to make a Spiritual Communion when Mass is banned because of ...

    Spiritual Communion is the practice of desiring union with Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. It is used primarily by individuals who cannot receive holy Communion, such as the ill, the divorced and remarried, and those who have not yet been received into full communion with the Church. St. Thomas Aquinas described it as “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the most holy sacrament and lovingly embrace him” at a time or in circumstances when we cannot receive him in sacramental Communion.

    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.
