This prayer is said when we find ourselves unable to be physically present at Mass but wish to join in it.

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 into 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.
