“The Eucharist is the ‘source and summit of the Christian life.’
‘The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries
and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist
and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is
contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely
Christ himself, our Pasch’.”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church 1324

Spiritual Communion Prayer
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.
