PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus I believe you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot receive you sacramentally, come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen
