How to make a Spiritual Communion

      The U.S. Bishops website contains links to online Mass.

   If that’s not possible, you may do the following:

1. Make the Profession of Faith

2. Read and reflect on the readings for Mass that day (see page 5)

3. Pray the Our Father

   Whether you watch a televised Mass or pray together at home, include this beautiful prayer:

My Jesus, I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I long for you in my soul. Since I cannot now receive you Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though you have already come, I embrace you and unite myself entirely to you; never permit me to be separated from you.
