An 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 unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
A Prayer
May we who have much, remember those who have little.
May we who are full, remember those who are hungry.
May we who are loved, remember those who are lonely.
May we who are safe, remember those who are in danger.
May we who have so much, learn to share.
Just a Little Wish
When shadows are creeping, when joy lights are leaping.
When troubles or triumphs walk close by your side.
In dark days and sad days, in bright days and glad days,
May Mary protect you and God by your guide.
