How to make an Act of Spiritual Communion
If you can’t get to Mass, you can make an Act of Spiritual Communion:
- Make the Sign of the Cross
- Read the Mass readings
- Recite the Prayer of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe 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.
- Pope Francis’ Prayer intentions for May
In May we pray with Pope Francis for all young people called to live life to the full; may they, through Mary’s life, discover how to listen and discern deeply. May they also discover the courage that faith brings, and a commitment to serve.
‘Dear young people, do not be afraid of making decisive choices in life. Have faith; the Lord will not abandon you!’
– Pope Francis
