Act of Spiritual Communion: 
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 there, and I unite myself wholly to You.  
Never permit me to be separated from You. 
~St. Alphonsus Liguori

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion —
inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent,
but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will,
which is love and mercy itself.  Amen.

“It is by taking time out to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament that this relationship with Our Lord begins to increase, and grow and blossom. ...Adoration builds community. The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity, Jesus unifying His people. Through the intimacy of quiet prayer with Jesus, one experiences the personal love of the Savior and grasps the reality that we are all one with the whole Body of Christ.” ~ St. John Paul II
