by St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Padre Pio celebrated Mass daily,and at various times during the day,
he would pause and pray, making a spiritual communion.
I believe that you are truly present
in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things
and I desire to possess You within my soul.
Since I am unable at this moment
to receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as being already there,
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
