O God, I would wish to receive You with that love with which the most holy and loving souls, with which Immaculate Mary received You. With their Communion I unite this Communion of mine. Most holy Virgin, my Mother, Mary, behold I am going to receive Your Son. Give me this day my Jesus, as you gave Him to the shepherds and to the Magi. I wish to receive Him from my most pure hands; tell Him that I am your servant, and that I am devoted to you; and when He comes to me, He will look on me with a more loving eye, and will unite Himself more closely to me.

My soul, the happy hour is arrived; Jesus comes to dwell in my poor heart. Behold the King of heaven, my Redeemer and my God, coming to me; prepare myself to receive Him with love; say to Him with the most ardent desire: Come, O my Jesus, come to me: I desire to receive You, before You give Yourself to me, I desire to give You my heart; accept it, come and take full possession of it. Come, my God, do not delay.

O my Divine Jesus, how shall I return You thanks for the goodness in giving Yourself to me? The only way I can repay Your love is by loving You in return. Yes, my Lord, I love You, and I desire to love You all my life. My Jesus, You alone are sufficient for me. Whom shall I love, if I love not You, my Jesus? You love those who love You. I love you. Oh, do You also love me. If I love You but little, give me the love which You require of me. O Mary, my good Mother, and You glorious Saint Joseph, lend me your love wherewith to love my Jesus.
