Maybe you work long hours. Maybe you’re a stay-at-home mom with little ones. Maybe you’re dealing with an illness. Maybe you can’t sIeep at night. These are just a few of the situations when you can make a spiritual communion, “an act of faith and love toward Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament with an ardent desire to receive Him” (Baltimore Catechism). You can make spiritual communions at any time of the day (or night!).
Using your own words is fine (you don’t even have to put your desire to receive Our Lord into words), or you can use this spiritual communion prayer by St. Alphonsus Liguori.
