Spiritual Communion Prayer

Now that the English Bishops have ‘invited’ us back to church to fulfil our Sunday obligation it has been decided that we no longer need to recite the prayer of spiritual communion as most of us will now be present in the church and therefore able to receive communion.

Those of you who still have concerns about coming back into the church might like to consider attending the 6.00 pm Mass on a weekday. This is a quiet Mass with plenty of space to spread out, and during the lighter summer evenings might offer a less threatening way back for some of you.

For those who wish to continue to recite this prayer it is re-printed below.

My Jesus,

I believe that you are present

in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.

I love you above all things

and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,

come spiritually into my soul

so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.

Amen.

The prayer of St Alphonsus
