The "Objective Reality" of Spiritual Communion

The Church follows the command Christ gave Peter, "feed my lambs" in more than one way.

h/t to Luma Simms in First Things  for this quote from Hans Urs von Balthasar:
Spiritual communion is by no means merely an act of longing for the reception of the Lord under the sacramental signs; much deeper, and more properly, it is the act of prayer of a living and understanding faith, by which it enters into living communication and communion with Christ, the eternal and living Truth.
