My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. Although You have already come, I embrace You & unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
