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.
(May be said morning, noon and night, to put us in mind that God the Son became man for our salvation.)
V. The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary ...
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
R. Be it done to me according to your word.
Hail Mary ...
V. And the Word was made flesh:
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary ...
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God:
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an Angel, may by his Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of his Resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for England
O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England, your Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in you. By thee it was that Jesus, our Saviour and our hope, was given unto the world and he has given thee to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the cross. O sorrowful Mother, intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the Chief Shepherd, the Vicar of thy son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith, fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with you in our heavenly home. Amen.
