Personal Prayer of Spiritual Communion
All: My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the
Blessed Sacrament,
I love you above all things and
I desire you with all my heart.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already in my heart
and unite myself to you completely,
Amen!
