Prayer for
Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

OFFICIAL PRAYER OF THE
YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
!

The official prayer of the Year of St. Joseph was composed by Pope Leo XIII in his 1889 encyclical, Quamquam Pluries.
The Holy Father asked that it be added to the end of the Rosary when prayed.

This prayer is enriched with
a partial indulgence (Source: USCCB).
