How to make an Act of Spiritual Communion

If you can’t get to Mass, you can make an Act of Spiritual Communion:

  1. Make the Sign of the Cross
  2. Read the Mass readings
  3. 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

  • 3 Minute Retreat:  We all need just a 3-minute breather to rest with God.
