The “Imitation of Christ” on Spiritual Communion

By Peter Darcy | On May 12, 2016 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

Any devout person may at any hour on any day receive Christ in spiritual communion profitably and without hindrance. Yet on certain days and times appointed he ought to receive with affectionate reverence the Body of his Redeemer in this Sacrament, seeking the praise and honor of God rather than his own consolation. For as often as he devoutly calls to mind the mystery and passion of the Incarnate Christ, and is inflamed with love for him, he communicates mystically and is invisibly refreshed. (Bk IV, Ch. 10).
