Spiritual Communion: Thomas Aquinas described Spiritual Communion as the ardent desire to receive Jesus in the most holy sacrament and lovingly embrace him at a time or in circumstances when we cannot receive him in Sacramental Communion. He also tells us that a Spiritual Communion confers the graces of Communion at Mass. St. Alphonsus lists three essential ingredients to making this a valid Spiritual Communion:
- An act of faith in truth of the real presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
- An act of desire, accompanied by sorrow for one’s sins so as to worthily receive these graces as if one were receiving sacramental Communion.
- An act of thanksgiving afterward as if Jesus was received sacramentally.
Here is a prayer you can pray to make a Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to possess You within my soul. Since I am unable at this moment to receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as being already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
