spiritual communion image.jpg

 While unable to be physically present to the Blessed Sacrament, the Church teaches that it is possible to make a spiritual communion with our Eucharistic Lord at home. Please consider using the following prayer by St. Alphonsus Liguori:

"My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. 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"
