An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now 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 from You. Amen.
A Prayer - Lord direct me Lord, for tomorrow, and it’s needs, I do not pray. But keep me, guide me, love me Lord, just for today. Amen
