You can “turn toward the holy tabernacle” and receive Jesus in your heart from anywhere you might be, day or night!

Approach him with sincerity, humility and a desire to follow in His footsteps in acts of faith and charity. 

The Baltimore Catechism notes that a Spiritual Communion “is an act of devotion, and one very pleasing to God.”

St. Jean-Marie Vianney, Once said “when we feel the love of God growing cold, let us instantly make a Spiritual Communion.

When we cannot go to the Church, let us turn towards the tabernacle; no wall can shut us out form the good God.”


My Jesus, 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 receiver 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.
