The many faces of St. Francis from the Basilica

Blessed Sacrament Chaplet

This chaplet is particularly appropriate to pray on feast days when there is no Celebration of the Eucharist in one's parish. Or on any other occasion when you cannot receive Jesus physically, but desire to make a spiritual communion. It begins:

"As I cannot now receive Thee, my Jesus, in Holy Communion, come, spiritually into my heart, and make it Thine own forever."

Then 33 times, once for each year of Our Lord's earthly life, devoutly pray:
"Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar, have mercy on us!"

Take a moment to pray
