“The Little Number of Those
Who Are Saved”
By St Leonard of Port Maurice
“Alas! The greater number of Catholics,
the greater number of those who live here,
perhaps even those who are in this assembly,
will be damned!
What subject could be more deserving of your tears?!”
“If you practice the holy exercise
of Spiritual Communion,
a good many times each day,
within a month,
you will see yourself completely changed.”
St Leonard of Port Maurice (1676-1751)
A Short Act of Spiritual Communion
By St Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787)
Doctor of the Church
I believe that Thou art present
in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love Thee above all things
and I desire Thee in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally,
come at least, spiritually, into my heart.
As though Thou were already there,
I embrace Thee
and unite myself wholly to Thee,
permit not, that I should ever,
be separated from Thee.
