no plague approach your tent. For you has he commanded his angels to keep you in all your ways. R/

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER:
I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You in my soul.
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.
