Act of Spiritual Communion

I have come to spend a few moments with Thee, O Jesus,
and in spirit I prostrate myself in the dust before Thy Holy Tabernacle
to adore Thee, my Lord and God, in deepest humility.

Once more a day has come to its close, dear Jesus,
another day which brings me nearer to the grave
and my beloved heavenly home.
Once more, O Jesus, my heart longs for Thee,
the true Bread of Life, which contains all sweetness and relish.

O my Jesus, mercifully grant me pardon
for the faults and ingratitude of this day,
and come to me to refresh my poor heart which longs for Thee.
As the heart pants for the waters,
as the parched earth longs for the dew of heaven,
even so does my poor heart long for Thee, Thou Fount of Life.

I love Thee, O Jesus, I hope in Thee, I love Thee,
and out of love for Thee
I regret sincerely all my sins.
May Thy peace and Thy benediction be mine now
and always and for all eternity. Amen.

-Saint Conrad of Parzham, OFM Cap-
