Act of Spiritual Communion

Oh 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 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.
