Spiritual Communion


After the completion of morning prayers.



In the + Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.


Our Father, who art in heaven,                 

hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come,                          

thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, 

and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.


The Collect

Let the power of the Holy Spirit come upon me, O Lord, I beseech Thee: 

that He may both mercifully cleanse my heart and defend me from all adversities. 

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


The Epistle

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, 

I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. (Revelation 3:20)


The Gospel 

I am the vine, ye are the branches.

He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing. (St. John 15:5)


Act of Contrition

O God, I am very sorry that I have sinned against Thee who art so good. 

Forgive me for Jesus’ sake, and I will try to sin no more.



Lord, I cannot seek Thee on Thine altar throne,

Yet I may receive Thee , Weary and alone.


When, before Thine altar, adoring crowds kneel,

There in very essence, Thou didst come to heal.


Far from Priest and altar, Christ to Thee I cry,

Come to me in spirit, let me feel Thee nigh.


In my silent worship, let me share the feast,

Be Thy Love the altar, By Thyself the Priest.  Amen.



O Most blessed Saviour,

in union with the faithful at every altar of Thy Church

where Thy blessed Body and Blood are being offered to the Father, 

I desire to offer Thee praise and thanksgiving,

I present to Thee my soul and body

with the earnest wish that I may always be united to Thee. 

I believe that Thou art truly present in the Holy Sacrament.

And since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally into my heart; 

I unite myself to Thee and embrace Thee with all the affections of my soul. 

Let me never be separated from Thee. Let me live and die in Thy love. Amen.

+ Come, Lord Jesus, and dwell in the fulness of Thy strength,

in the perfection of Thy ways, and in the holiness of Thy Spirit, 

and rule over every hostile power in the might of Thy Spirit,

and to the glory of Thy Father.  Amen.

Blessed, praised, and adored be Jesus Christ on His throne of glory in Heaven,

and in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, save me;

Blood of Christ, inebriate me;

Water from the side of Christ, wash me;

Passion of Christ, strengthen me;

O good Jesu, hear me;

Within Thy wounds hide me;

Suffer me not to be separated from Thee;

From the malicious enemy defend me;

In the hour of death call me,

And bid me come to Thee.

And with Thy Saints I may praise Thee

For ever and ever.  Amen.
