An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
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 from You.


Broadcast version

O Jesus, Thou hast given us in the Holy Eucharist
Thy Body and Blood to be our spiritual nourishment
through which we may have life everlasting.

Would that I were able to receive Thee this day
in Holy Communion.

I desire with all my heart to receive
the Living Bread which comes down from Heaven.

Oh, Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter
under my roof. Say but the word and my soul shall
be healed.

Let me taste at least the sweetness of a spiritual
communion. Come to me, Jesus, my Lord, my Master.
Come and refresh my soul. Strengthen me that in
union with Thee I may do perfectly the Heavenly
Father's will. Let me never be separated from
Thee by sin.

Soul of Jesus, sanctify me.
Body of Jesus, save me.
Blood of Jesus, wash me.
Water out of the side of Jesus, purify me.
Passion of Jesus, comfort me.
Oh, good Jesus, hear me.

Hide me within Thy Sacred Wounds.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, receive me.
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, plead for me and love me. Amen.
