Spiritual Communion by Cardinal Merry del Val

At Thy feet, O my Jesus, I prostrate myself and I offer Thee the repentance of my heart, which is humbled in its nothingness and in Thy holy presence. I adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, the ineffable Eucharist. I desire to receive Thee into the poor dwelling that my heart offers Thee. While waiting for the happiness of sacramental Communion, I wish to possess Thee in spirit. Come to me, O my Jesus, since I, for my part am coming to Thee. May Thy love inflame my whole being in life and in death. I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee. Amen.

O God, who didst promise St. Roch by an angel that all who had recourse to him should have nothing to fear from pestilence and contagious maladies, grant that through his intercession we may be preserved from all dangers, both of soul and body, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Glorious St. Roch, present in our favor thy efficacious prayers to the throne of Divine Mercy, that we may not be affected by the scourge of contagion. Preserve us, by thy intercession, from the pestilence of the body; and above all, obtain for us deliverance from the more grievous maladies of the soul. Amen
