Spiritual Communion Prayer
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
