According to St. Thomas Aquinas, Spiritual Communion includes 2 main elements: an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and a loving embrace as though we had already received Him. Spiritual communion produces within us effects similar to Sacramental Communion, according to the fervor of our desire and to the love with which we give Him welcome and attention. An ardent Spiritual Communion obtains for us the graces we need to become more pleasing to God, to practice virtue, and to avoid sin. An act of Spiritual Communion can be made with your own prayerful words or using a formula such as this one below.

Act of Spiritual Communion recommended by St. Alphonsus Ligouri:

My Jesus, I believe that Thou art truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things, and I long for Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace Thee as though Thou hast already come. I unite myself entirely to Thee. Never permit me to be separated from Thee. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Francis de Sales, pray for us.
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us.
