Spiritual Communion

Perhaps getting to daily Mass is difficult or impossible.

How to keep the presence of the Lord between Sundays and Holy Days, then? We need to rediscover the practice of making a spiritual communion. Remember, at every moment of the day and night Mass is being offered somewhere in the world!

Here is a good prayer:

In union, O Lord, with the faithful at every altar of your Church where the Holy Eucharist is now being celebrated,  I desire to offer you praise and thanksgiving. I present to you my soul and body with the earnest wish that I may always be united to you. And since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I beg you to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself to you and embrace you with all the affections of my soul. Let nothing ever separate me from you. May I live and die in your love.  Amen.

This would be a great prayer for families to say together during their prayer time!
