Communion

  • 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.

    Dear Lord, may I receive You in this Communion with open arms, and a loving, contrite heart, so that I may be filled with Your grace, For my good and Your glory!

  • Act of Reparation Before Holy Communion

    O Lord, my God and Savior, who,
    as Thou didst endure for our salvation
    the outrages of those who crucified Thee,
    so now deigns to bear with those
    who by careless or unworthy Communions
    approach and touch Thee,
    not discerning Thee,
    and endures all irreverence
    rather than withhold Thy sacred Presence from our Altars:
    I bewail these indignities,
    and most earnestly desire to prevent,
    to the utmost of my power,
    whatever thus still grieves Thee.
    I beseech Thee,
    accept this sorrow and this desire as the only offering
    I can make in reparation for such great dishonor.
    O Lord, increase my faith,
    and preserve me from the least profanation
    of this adorable Mystery,
    and kindle in me and in the hearts of all Thy people,
    especially of all who celebrate or assist in its
    ministration,
    such reverence and devotion
    that Thy most holy name may more and more be honored
    and glorified in this Sacrament. Amen.

  • Anima Christi

    Soul of Christ, sanctify me
    Body of Christ, save me
    Blood of Christ, inebriate me
    Water from Christ’s side, wash me
    Passion of Christ, strengthen me
    O good Jesus, hear me
    Within Thy wounds, hide me
    Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
    From the malicious enemy, defend me
    In the hour of my death, call me
    And bid me come unto Thee
    That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
    And with Thy angels
    Forever and ever. Amen.

  • Prayer After Holy Communion

    Jesus, I believe that I have received Your flesh to eat and Your Blood to drink, because You have said it, and Your word is true. Jesus, my God, I adore You, because from Your hands I came and with You I am to be happy forever.
    Jesus, I love You. I love You with all my heart. You know that I love You, and I wish to love You daily more and more. Jesus, my Lord, I thank You, I thank You with all my heart. How good, how kind You are to me, Lord Jesus. Blessed be Jesus in this most Holy Sacrament.
    O Jesus, receive my poor offering. Jesus, You have given Yourself to me, now let me give myself to You.
    I give You my body that I may be chaste and pure.

  • Prayer After Holy Communion (by Saint Augustine)

    My Jesus, I love and adore You. You have come to me; I am one with You. I want You to remain with me forever, in this life and in the next. Thank You for allowing me to share Your divine life. May I become more like You through this sacred Food. Let me never take You for granted, but always pray for those whose lives are dark with sin, ignorance and selfishness. Each day, I can become more like You, O Lord. And each day I can pray for those who have never heard the Gospel, or who have heard it and rejected it. Amen.
