During this time of uncertainty in our world, Catholics are heartbroken that we cannot attend Mass or receive the Eucharist. Many of us are also unable to enter a church and pray before the Tabernacle. Nothing can replace what we are missing, but we are still able to make a Spiritual Communion at this time. One way to do this is to use Beads of the Blessed Sacrament chaplet which have been designed specially for when we are unable to attend Mass or receive the Eucharist due to sickness, disability or other life circumstances.
This chaplet was from the Blessed Sacrament Fathers and was approved on May 30, 1911 by Pope Pius X.
How to pray the Beads of the Blessed Sacrament chaplet:
On the medal make a spiritual communion as follows:
As I cannot now receive Thee, my Jesus, in Holy Communion, come, spiritually into my heart, and make it Thine own forever.
On each bead pray:
Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us.
I pray this chaplet will help console you and bring you closer to our Lord at this difficult time.
