Prayer for spiritual Communion
Oh my Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things, and I passionately desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally come spiritually into my soul.
so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen

Two other events scheduled, are a talk by Fr Paul Nicholson SJ on Discernment, and a study morning on ‘How the Second Vatican Council led to the synod on synodality’ with Greg Ryan.
