In the days of Jesus, family had an importance that went even deeper than it does today, with economic, social, and even survival aspects. Give up or divide a family for the gospel? Jesus asks for a lot!

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, 
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.
