An Act of Spiritual Communion

“At Your feet, O my Jesus,
I prostrate myself and I offer You the repentance of my contrite heart,
which is humbled in its nothingness and in Your holy presence.
I adore You in the Sacrament of Your love, the ineffable Eucharist.
I desire to receive You into the poor dwelling that my heart offers You.
While waiting for the happiness of sacramental communion,
I wish to possess You in spirit.
Come to me, O my Jesus,
since I, for my part, am coming to You!
May Your love embrace my whole being
in life and in death.
I believe in You,
I hope in You,
I love You.

An Act of Spiritual Communion, attributed to Cardinal Merry del Val (d.1930), which Pope Francis prayed at Mass in Santa Marta, Wednesday,  1st April 2020. 




Christ with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ in me,

Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my right,

Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down,

Christ when I sit down,

Christ when I arise,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me.
