Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time
20th June 2021

Prayer for Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in
the most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things
and I desire to receive You in
Since I cannot at this moment
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.
