Prayer When One Cannot Receive Communion by Sarah Wolf | Jun 5, 2020 | Feature Articles | 2 comments 2 Comments Jeanne Vaughn on June 9, 2020 at 8:02 pm Thank you so much for the two prayers. They were beautiful and they both touched my heart. Communion is coming soon. My congregation and I have missed it. Thank you again and may God continue to smile on you. Reply Bill Hayes on June 10, 2020 at 9:11 am The original “Act of Spiritual Communion ” written by 18th century Bishop Alphonsus Liguori serves as the excellent prayer for this purpose and does not need to be improved upon, much in the same way many traditional Catholic prayers do not need to be improved upon.
