Each time we receive Holy Communion our venial sins are forgotten. Christ revealed to St. Gertrude the Great that each time one person receives Holy Communion, something good happens to every being in Heaven, on earth, and in Purgatory. The Cure of Ars said that a Communion well received is worth more than 20,000 NFF given to the poor.
Each time we receive Communion our place in Heaven is raised forever, our stay in Purgatory shortened. We Should Never Let A Day Pass Without Going To Holy Communion!
The value of a spiritual Communion well made is enormous. We can, and should, make one frequently. Simply think on Jesus and how much He loves us and how much we love Him, then ask Our Blessed Mother to ask Her Divine Son to come into our hearts. We can offer these Communions for the interest of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, noting our special intention!
After receiving Holy Communion, Our Lord said we should pray:
"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, may the whole world burn with love for You!"
(revelation to Gabrielle Bosse in France).
A Prayer for Spiritual Communion
By a rescript of November 24. 1922 the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences approved the following formula for a spiritual communion:
"O Jesus I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come nevertheless and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen.
Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
An indulgence of 500 days, if thrice repeated.
(129 The Raccolta 1944).
It was the Cure of Ars who said, "A spiritual communion acts on the soul as blowing does on a cinder-covered fire which was about to go out. Whenever you feel your love of God growing cold, quickly make a spiritual communion."
Prayer After Communion: ANIMA CHRISTI
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 Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds, hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malignant enemy, defend me.
In the hour of my death, call me.
And bid me come to Thee.
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee.
Forever and ever. Amen.
