Act of Spiritual Communion

St. Alphonse Ligouri | San Alfonso Maria de Ligorio

My Jesus, I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and 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.

Creo, Jesús mío, que estás real y verdaderamente en el cielo y en el Santísimo Sacramento del Altar. Te amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente, ven al menos espiritualmente a mi corazón. Y como si ya te hubiera recibido, te abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti. Señor, jamás permitas que me aparte de Ti. Amén.
