We also share feedback for listeners about saying no, about offering it up, and about daily prayer. Theresa recommends praying a prayer of spiritual communion. Here is one for you try:


O Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where you live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come nevertheless and visit me with your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto your own. Amen.
