   Spiritual Communion [Prayer of St Alphonsus]
   My Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
  I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
  Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come spiritually into my soul so
  that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen.
