Spiritual Communion

“At Thy feet, O my Jesus, I prostrate myself and offer Thee the sorrow of my contrite heart, which is sunk in the abyss of its own nothingness and in Thy holy presence. I adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, the ineffable Eucharist. I desire to receive Thee into the poor dwelling that my soul offers Thee. Awaiting the happiness of a Sacramental Communion, I wish to receive Thee in spirit. Come to me, for I come to Thee, O my Jesus, and may Thy love inflame my whole being for life and for death. I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee. Amen.”

Cardinal Merry del Val

“A spiritual communion acts on the soul as blowing does on a cinder-covered fire which was about to go out. Whenever you feel your love of God growing cold, quickly make a spiritual communion.”
