St. Alphonsus Maria de' Liguori

My Jesus,

I believe that Thou are present in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love Thee above all things and I desire within my soul.

Since I cannot receive Thee sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

As though Thou were already there,

I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee;

permit me not that I should ever be separated from Thee.


Some reflections


Let us pray that the hiearchy never again shut the doors of any church buildings, and more importantly, never again refuse to serve our Lord. The Holy Communion is through the Transubstantiation, the actual body and blood of our Lord.

When we were unable to receive Holy Communion, Catholics are encouraged to make a spiritual communion. The Vatican News wrote a piece about a Spiritual Communion on 27 April 2020, as it was related to the Corona virus.

"The second article in the “Living through the Crisis” series of reflections from Father Federico Lombardi. The emergency situation we are experiencing, and the strain of living without the Eucharist, leads us to rediscover “spiritual Communion”."

Was there ever an/one official prayer if it was such importance?

Is there is an official method of preparation of it?

Who did actually decide to shut the church doors, and lock the flock outside?

  • We must remember that spiritual communions—though holy—are not an ultimate replacement for sacramental Holy Communion.
  • Why don't we just be patient and pray and wait to be able to receive Him again sacramentally?

If we are required to receive the communion a minimum once a year, go to confession at least once a year, but attend every Sunday Mass, why was the "spiritual communion" of importance - in particularly as there is no official statement of how to pray and how to prepare? 

How many people never came back to the Church after being locked out for two years?

Why was there an act of love to inject a substance tested on stem-cells from an aborted child (HEK293) in 1973?

"Vaccine makers may use these fetal cell lines during the following two phases:

  • Research and development
  • Production and manufacturing

When it comes to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, fetal cell line HEK 293 was used during the research and development phase. All HEK 293 cells are descended from tissue taken from a 1973 abortion that took place in the Netherlands."

The Catholic Church has encouraged its members to use alternative vaccines, produced without human cell lines, if possible. "The official teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1992 oppose all forms of abortion procedures whose direct purpose is to destroy azygote, blastocyst, embryo or fetus, since it holds that "human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment o conception.

Ìn 2018, in Aleteia, there was a text about the spiritual communion:

"For various reasons we may be prevented from receiving the Eucharist at Mass. We may have broken the one hour fast,
be in a state of mortal sin, or we could even be homebound, unable to leave our home to attend Mass.

St. Josemaria Escriva encouraged everyone to make a spiritual communion as often as they could, “What a source of grace there is in spiritual communion! Practice it frequently and you’ll have greater presence of God and closer union with him in all your actions.”

Padre Pio also had a habit of making a spiritual communion throughout the day outside of the celebration of Mass.
He desired to be always united with Jesus Christ in everything he did." 

The data were quite clear early on in 2020, and looking at the death, injuries, and who actually died from the virus, this has become an issue of importance. The lockdowns were harmful to our children. Kids in the UK was out of school for 270 days.
