    Thank you for publishing this very touching article on Spiritual Communion. When I first heard the suggestion that we use this prayer while sacramental communion is not readily available, I wondered how we had (at least many of us) let this beautiful gift slip from our grasp in recent decades. If we could resume the practice of saying this prayer frequently during the day it might well prove to be a major source of consolation for young and old. The version I was taught by the good Sisters of St Joseph went like this: Lord, since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart and dwell there forever. Amen.
