Spiritual Communion during COVID-19

At this time of pandemic, the bishops have removed the obligation to attend Holy Mass on Sundays and Solemnities. You can make a Spiritual Communion, for example whilst watching a video-streamed Mass. It’s a good prayer for any visit to church outside of Mass too!

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.
