RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Isaiah 12:2-6.
RESPONSE: Shout, and sing for joy,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God is my strength and my song,

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.
