Spiritual Communion

St. Alphonsus Liguori:
“My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the most Blessed Sacrament.  I love Thee above all things and I desire to receive Thee into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace Thee as if Thou wert already there, and unite myself wholly to Thee.  Never permit me to be separated from Thee.  Amen.”

Rafael Merry del Val:
At Thy feet, O my Jesus, I prostrate myself and I offer Thee repentance of my contrite heart, which is humbled in its nothingness and in Thy holy presence.  I adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, the ineffable Eucharist.  I desire to receive Thee into the poor dwelling that my heart offers Thee.  While waiting for the happiness of sacramental communion, I wish to possess Thee in spirit.  Come to me, O my Jesus, since I, for my part, am coming to Thee!  May Thy love embrace my whole being in life and in death.  I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee.  Amen.

As I cannot this day enjoy the happiness of assisting at the holy Mysteries, O my God! I transport myself in spirit at the foot of Thine altar; I unite with the Church, which by the hands of the priest, offers Thee Thine adorable Son in the Holy Sacrifice; I offer myself with Him, by Him, and in His Name. I adore, I praise, and thank Thee, imploring Thy mercy, invoking Thine assistance, and presenting Thee the homage I owe Thee as my Creator, the love due to Thee as my Saviour.
Apply to my soul, I beseech Thee, O merciful Jesus, Thine infinite merits; apply them also to those for whom I particularly wish to pray. I desire to communicate spiritually, that Thy Blood may purify, Thy Flesh strengthen, and Thy Spirit sanctify me.  May I never forget that Thou, my divine Redeemer, hast died for me; may I die to all that is not Thee, that hereafter I may live eternally with Thee.  Amen.

O Immaculate Queen of Heaven and Earth, Mother of God and Mediatrix of every grace: I believe that Thy dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is truly, really, and substantially contained in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love Him above all things and I long to receive Him into my heart.  Since I cannot now receive Him sacramentally, be so good as to place Him spiritually in my soul.  O my Jesus, I embrace Thee as One who has already come, and I unite myself entirely to Thee.  Never permit me to be separated from Thee.  Amen.

Additional Traditional Form
In union, O Dear Lord, with the faithful at every Altar of Thy Church, where Thy blessed Body and Blood are being offered to the Father, I desire to offer Thee praise and thanksgiving.  I offer to Thee my soul and body with the earnest desire that I may always be united to Thee.  And since I can not now receive Thee sacramentally, I beseech Thee to enter spiritually into my heart.  I unite myself to Thee, and embrace Thee with all the affections of my soul.  O let nothing ever separate me from Thee.  Let me live and die in Thy love.  Amen.

Grant, O Lord Jesus Christ, that as the hem of Thy garment, touched in faith, healed the woman who could not touch Thy Body, so the soul of Thy servant may be healed by like faith in Thee, Whom I cannot now sacramentally receive; through Thy tender mercy, Who livest and reignest with the Father in the unity of the Holy Ghost ever one God.  Amen.
