Making a spiritual Communion

Although we cannot receive the Eucharist in physical form if we are unable to attend Mass, we are able to receive Jesus spiritually through this prayer:

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, 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.

Fr. Patrick has recorded a reflection on another way to experience Spiritual Communion. View it here.
