RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 118.
Give praise to the Lord, for he is good; his mercy endures forever.

2. The Lord’s right hand has done mighty deeds; his right hand is exalted. The Lord’s right hand has done mighty deeds’. I shall not die, I shall live and recount the deeds of the Lord. The Lord punished me, punished me severely, but did not hand me over to death. ℟

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.
Take your hand and feel the place of the nails, and be no longer doubtful but believing, alleluia.
