ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things,
and I long for you in my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart. As though you have already come, I embrace you and unite myself
entirely to you; never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
