Corona Virus (COVID-19) Pandemic Prayers - Spiritual Communion



Catholic Prayers of Spiritual Communion

When we are unable to receive Holy Communion sacramentally, we can receive great graces and blessings by expressing our desire to do so in what is called a “spiritual Communion.” This practice goes back many centuries and has a rich tradition. 

Jesus, I believe that You are really present in the Holy Eucharist.
Jesus, I love You because You are all-good and deserving of my love
I want to receive You in Holy Communion, the Gift You have chosen above all others to share Yourself and Your life with me. 
Please come into my heart, my life and everything I do.

Thank Him for being truly within your heart and soul Spiritual Communion.

Prayer by Saint Alphonsus Liguori

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. 
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. 
As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen. 

Prayer of Saint Josemaria Escriva

I wish, Lord, to receive you with the purity, humility and devotion with which your most holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervour of the saints.” 

Saint John of God Prayer

Dear Saint John of God, after a sinful life, through the power of God's Word you learned to love your fellow human beings.  Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers.

We ask you to please intercede for (__________) and all that suffer anxiety, weakness and diseases of the heart, as well as any other illnesses.

Teach us to be kind like you.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

HOPE as the CERTAINTY of our DESTINY

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

Feast Day May 1st

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty", "The Wonder-Worker", because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.  For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more.  You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction.  Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you. (...recall names of those you are praying for).  Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.  Amen.

Novena to Saint Gianna

Feast Day April 28

St. Gianna is the Patron Saint for mothers, physicians and unborn children.


God, our Father, You have granted to Your church the gift of Gianna Beretta Molla. In her youth she lovingly sought You and drew other young people to You, involving them, through apostolic witness and Catholic Action, in the care of the sick and aged, to help and comfort them.


We thank You for the gift of this young woman, so deeply committed to You. Through her example grant us the grace to consecrate our lives to Your service, for the joy of our brothers and sisters.


Glory be …


Jesus, Redeemer of mankind, You called Saint Gianna to exercise the medical profession as a mission for the comfort of bodies and souls. In her suffering fellow men and in the little ones, deprived of all support, she saw You.


We thank You for having revealed Yourself to this servant as “one who serves” and who soothes the sufferings of men. Treasuring her example may we become generous Christians at the service of our brothers and sisters, especially those with whom You deign to share Your Cross.


Glory be…


God, Sanctifying Spirit, who love the Church as Your Bride, You poured into the heart of Saint Gianna a share of Your Love so that she could radiate it in her family, and thus cooperate with You in the wonderful plan of creation, and give life to new children who could know and love You.


We thank You for this model wife and, through her encouraging witness, we beg You to grant to our families the serene and Christian presence of mothers committed to transform their homes into cenacles of faith and love, rich with generous activity and sanctifying service.


Glory be…


O God, Creator and lover of mankind, You were close to Saint Gianna when, affected by illness, she was in the painful dilemma of choosing between her own life and the life of the child whom she was carrying in herself, a gift long-awaited. Trusting You alone, and aware of Your Commandment to respect human life, Gianna found the courage to do her duty as a mother and to say “yes” to the new life of her baby, generously sacrificing her own. Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Jesus, and after the example of Gianna, inspire all mothers to welcome with love the sparkle of new life. Grant us the grace we are praying for (especially………….) and the joy to find an inspiration in Saint Gianna who, as a model spouse and mother, after the example of Christ, gave up her life for the life of others.

Corpus Christi Novena

Feast Day June 22, 2014

I adore Thee profoundly, O my Jesus, in Thy sacramental form; I acknowledge Thee to be true God and true Man, and by this act of adoration I intend to atone For the coldness of so many Christians who pass before Thy churches and sometimes Before the very Tabernacle in which Thou art pleased to remain at all hours with Loving impatience to give Thyself to Thy faithful people, and do not so much as bend The knee before Thee, and who, by their indifference proclaim that they grow weary of this heavenly manna, like the people of Israel in the wilderness.

I offer Thee, in reparation for this grievous negligence, the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from Thy five wounds, and especially from Thy sacred Side, and Entering therein, I repeat a thousand times with true recollection of spirit:

O Sacrament most holy!  O Sacrament Divine!  All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine.

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your Spirit and Life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that my life may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus! Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine. It will be You, shining on others through me. Let me thus praise You in the way which You love best, by shining on those around me.
