SPIRITUAL COMMUNION -During Covid


Even if the church doors remain closed and I can’t participate in the Holy Mass, I will not be distressed, because the blessed Trinity dwells within me. God took residence in my heart when I got baptized into the Church, the body of Christ. Today, when my heart longs for his precious body and blood, when I miss him terribly, the Lord consoles me from within saying, “Child, don’t be sad, I am here within you. I am the infinite one. I am beyond space and time. I am still close. I can hear you; I can feel you.” Now when your heart deeply misses the holy communion, understand that you can always receive me in spiritual communion. When you desire and pray for this, I come to you the same way as I have come before in the holy communion.

 An Act of Spiritual 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. Amen.
