BYZANTINE ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
O Lord, I believe and profess that you are truly Christ,
The Son of the living God, who came into the world
To save sinners of whom I am the first.
Although I cannot now be a partaker of your mystical supper,
O Son of God,
Come at least spiritually into my heart by your Divine Grace
For the healing of my soul and body.
For I will not reveal your mystery to your enemies.
Nor will I give you a kiss as did Judas, But like the thief I profess to you.
Remember me, O Lord, when you come in your kingdom
Remember me, O Master, when you come in your kingdom
Remember me, O Holy One, when you come in your kingdom.
O Lord, I also believe and profess that this
Which I would receive, and which is now
Here present with us in Mystery
Is truly Your most precious Body, and your life-giving Blood.
May I one day partake of your mystical supper again for the remission of
All my sins and for life everlasting. Amen.
O God, be merciful to be a sinner.
O God, cleanse of my sins and have mercy on me.
O Lord, forgive me for I have sinned without number.
