The Act Spiritual Communion
The heartfelt desire to receive Our Lord even when we are unable to do so at Mass. This desire to receive him through Spiritual Communion is an act of love which prolongs our thanksgiving even when we are not in the Eucharistic presence of Our Lord. The desire is to live constantly in His presence: ‘The effects of a sacrament can be received by desire’ (St Thomas Aquinas). There are many formulae from the saints for making a Spiritual Communion including St Alphonsus Liguori:
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment 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
