A Prayer for Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are truly
present in the Most
I love You above all things,
and I desire to possess
You within my soul.
Since I am unable at this
moment to receive You
come at least spiritually
into my heart.
I embrace You as being
already there, and unite
myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be
separated from You.
(Prayer by: Saint Alphonsus Liguori)
“At Your feet, O my Jesus,
I prostrate myself and I offer You
repentance of my contrite heart,
which is humbled in its nothingness
and in Your Holy presence.
I adore You in the Sacrament of Your Love,
the ineffable Eucharist.
I desire to receive You
into the poor dwelling that
my heart offers You.
While waiting for the happiness
of sacramental communion,
I wish to possess You in Spirit.
Come to me, O my Jesus,
since I, for my part, am coming to You.
May Your love embrace my whole being
in life and in death.
I believe in You.
I hope in You.
Forever and ever,
(Prayer by Carinal Rafael Merry del Val)

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to His disciples said, ‘Take and eat; this is My body.’ Then He took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you, for this is My blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins'” –Matthew 26:26-28.
