The Catholic Prayer Book for the Separated and Divorced, by Woodeene Koenig-Bricker and David Dziena. This book also contains this Spiritual Communion prayer attributed to St. Alphonsus Liquori:

My Jesus,
I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things, and I long for you in my soul,
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though you have already come,
I embrace you and unite myself entirely to you;
never permit me to be separated from you.
