A poem of love to recite after communion

COMMUNION

Pascal Deloche | Godong

Philip Kosloski - published on 02/09/21

Rest in the love of Jesus after receiving Holy Communion.

Receiving Jesus in the Eucharist is supposed to be a time of resting in the love of Jesus. However, we are frequently distracted, and time spent after Holy Communion can be less than fruitful.

One way to invite God to flood your soul with peace is to recite this poem, found in the 19th-century devotional The Glories of the Catholic Church, after communion, .

The happiness I now enjoy,With Jesus in my heart,The enemy can ne’er destroy,

With all his wily art.The bliss that Jesus now impartsTo my enraptured soul,Is only felt by faithful hearts

That sin cannot control.I feel my ardor now revive,With Jesus in my heart;In vain this world’s allurements striveMy Lord and I to part.
