Spiritual Communion

It was the Cure of Ars who said, "A spiritual communion acts on the soul as 
blowing does on a cinder - covered fire which was about to go out. Whenever 
you feel your love of God growing cold, quickly make a spiritual communion."
By a rescript of November 24, 1922, the Sacred Congregation of indulgences 
approved the following formula for a spiritual communion:

"O Jesus I turn toward the holy tabernacle 
where You live hidden for love of me. 
I love you, O my God. 
I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. 
Come nevertheless and visit me with Your grace. 
Come spiritually into my heart. 
Purify it. Sanctify it. 
Render it like unto Your own. Amen."

Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof, 
but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

[An indulgence of 500 days, if thrice repeated. (129 The Raccolta 1944).]

An Alternative Spiritual Communion Prayer

    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.

Praying the Chaplet of the Blessed Sacrament

Blessed Sacrament Beads consist of a medal of the Blessed Sacrament and 33 beads, recalling the 33 years of Christ's life on earth.
On the medal one makes 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 say:
"Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on the altar have mercy on us!"
Approved May 30, 1911 by Pope Pius X (The Holy Father has granted to
the entire world 300 days indulgence each time the above prayer is recited.)

As I don't have a Blessed Sacrament Chaplet I am going to use the Anglican Rosary pictured above and when I have a chance to buy the correct medal I will swap it for the crucifix.

My New Daily Prayer

The Miracle Prayer
Lord Jesus, I come before you, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever.  I invite you into my life, Jesus.  I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.
Come Lord Jesus, cover me with your Precious Blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I love you Lord Jesus. I praise you Jesus. I thank you Jesus.  I shall follow you every day of my life.   Amen.
Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace and all the Angels and Saints, please help me.  Amen.
