Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,  I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire You with all my heart.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, I ask you to come spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already in my heart and unite myself to You completely.  Please do not let me ever be separated from You.  Amen.

Also Daily Mass (Monday-Saturday) from the Cathedral

Mass in  English -  8 a.m.             Mass in Spanish – 8:30 a.m.
