Two approved Acts of Spiritual Communion.
       Act of Spiritual Communion composed by the saintly Raphael Cardinal Merry del Val about a century ago:
At Thy feet, O my Jesus, I prostrate myself and I offer Thee the repentance of my contrite heart, which is humbled in its nothingness and in Thy holy presence.  I adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, the ineffable Eucharist.  I desire to receive Thee into the poor dwelling that my heart offers Thee.  While waiting for the happiness of sacramental Communion, I wish to possess Thee in spirit.  Come to me, O my Jesus, since I, for my part, am coming to Thee!  May Thy love embrace my whole being in life and in death.  I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee.  Amen.

     Act of Spiritual Communion composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if You were already come, and I unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You.  Amen.
