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. Amen.
