Spiritual Communion Prayers

Act of Spiritual Communion

For those unable or not yet prepared to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you are invited to pray the following Act of Spiritual Communion at the time of Holy Communion.

Adults:

My Jesus, I believe that

You are 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 if You were already there 
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. 

Amen.

Children:

Dear Jesus,

I love You and want to receive You into my soul.
I believe You are present in what looks like bread and wine.
Until the day of my First Communion, please come into my heart
so that I may never be separated from You.

Amen.

Comunión Espiritual

Creo, Jesús mío, que estás real
y verdaderamente en el cielo
y en el Santísimo Sacramento del Altar.

Os amo sobre todas las cosas
y deseo vivamente recibirte
dentro de mi alma,
pero no pudiendo hacerlo
ahora sacramentalmente,
venid al menos
espiritualmente a mi corazón.
Y como si ya os hubiese recibido,
os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti.

Señor, no permitas que jamás me aparte de Ti.

Amén
