Making a Spiritual Communion

Churches are temporarily closing in some parts of the world as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. In South Korea and Hong Kong, for example, most churches have felt it wise not to have Sunday worship at present.

It is good to be prepared for times when we are prevented from being at Holy Mass, and Christians would not wish to feel isolated from their Christian community’s worship or indeed cut off from Holy Communion. A friend has sent me this guide to making a Spiritual Communion (with grateful thanks to this website). This encourages us by prayer and imagination to make our Communion as if we were in Church – a Spiritual Communion. (See this earlier post on our church blog).

Do read the guide carefully. It may well be a source of comfort and strength if you are not able to be present at Mass.
