SPIRITUAL COMMUNION 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 in 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

ORACIÓN DE COMUNIÓN ESPIRITUAL
Creo, Jesus mio, que estas real y verdaderamente en le cielo y en el Santismo Sacramento del Altar.
Os amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo
Vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente venid al menos espiritualmente a mi Corazon.
Y como si ya os hubiese recebido, os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti. Senor, no permitas que jamas me aparte de Ti.
Amen
