GOSPEL: Mark 1:7-11.


My Jesus,

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.


COMMUNION ANTIPHON: Behold the One of whom John said: I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.
