SPIRITUAL COMMUNION and ANIMA CHRISTI
All: Jesus, I desire to receive you
into the poor dwelling that my heart offers, while waiting for the happiness
of my 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. Amen.
All: 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
