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:

  1. An act of faith in truth of the real presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
