ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION 

SAINT ALPHONSUS LIGUORI 

My Jesus, 
I believe that you are truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 
I love You above all things and I desire to possess You within my soul. 
Since I am unable at this moment to 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. 

Saint Thomas Aquinas described Spiritual Communion as an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the most holy sacrament and lovingly embrace him at a time or in circumstances when we cannot receive him in Sacramental Communion.
