Spiritual communion

In the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Spend a few moments calling to mind your sins and say sorry to God in silence.

Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Kyrie Eleison

Collect: Read the collect of the day if you have access to it.

Readings: Quietly read the Mass readings for the day. Reflect on them. What are they saying to me?

Prayers: Bring to God your intercessions this day. Pray for the Church and clergy, the world, the local community, the sick and the dying. End with the Hail Mary. Then say the following

The church of God, of which I am a member, has taken bread and wine this day and offered them at the altar in accordance with your will. Though I cannot be physically present I ask that you help me to unite myself to the holy sacrifice of the Mass that I may now share spiritually in the gift of your body and blood.

Then say the Our Father and make your spiritual communion by reciting the following prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now 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.

End by reciting the post communion prayer for the day and then saying the glory be.
