An Act of Spiritual Communion Prayer: At every moment of every day the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is being offered somewhere in the world.
When it is impossible for us to attend Mass in person, we have a tradition in the Church by which we
make an Act of Spiritual Communion with these Masses.

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