SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

“My, Jesus,
I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive you sacramentally, come at
least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace you as if you were already there
and unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen.”
