Philip Kosloski - published on 04/05/20

Here is a brief collection of prayers inviting Jesus to dwell in your heart.

Not being able to attend Mass or receive Holy Communion can often be a heavy cross to endure. We desire Jesus to be within us, but are not able to receive him sacramentally.

The good news is that you can always receive Jesus in a “spiritual communion,” inviting him to dwell within your heart.

Click on the slideshow for a brief collection of spiritual communion prayers that can be used any time that you are not able to receive Jesus in the Eucharist.
