Spiritual Communion Prayer
Spiritual Communion Prayer
I believe that 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 encourages us to perform an act of Perfect Contrition. Read more about an act of Perfect Contrition HERE.
- 1. Pray an Act of Contrition: My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against You, whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with Your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
- 2. Second, a Catholic must make a firm commitment to go to Confession when that becomes possible.
