Method of Recitation:

The medal of this chaplet is #734 and are offered for sale in the 'Saint Medals-Special' section.

Traditionally the Blessed Sacrament chaplet is done in Job's Tears beads as seen here. That is not obligitory as they are a seed and can be hard to obtain.

The Blessed Sacrament Beads are from the Blessed Sacrament Fathers and consist of a medal of the Blessed Sacrament and 33 beads. This is in order to recall the 33 years of Christ’s life on earth.

1) On the medal one makes an act of spiritual communion:
As I cannot now receive Thee my Jesus, in Holy Communion, come spiritually into my heart, and make it Thine own forever.

2) On each bead say:
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us!
(This saying is also on the reverse of the medal to make it easier to remember.)

(Approved May 20, 1911 by Pope Pius X)

Adoration of the Angels
An Act of Faith in the Eucharist:
(for when you cannot say the entire chaplet)
Notes of interest:
O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art really and corporally present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. I adore Thee here present from the depths of my heart, and I worship Thy sacred presence with all possible humility. O my soul, what joy to have Jesus Christ always with us, and to be able to speak to Him, heart to heart, with all confidence. Grant, O Lord, that I, having adored Thy divine Majesty here on earth in this wonderful Sacrament, may be able to adore it eternally in heaven.
Raccolta 184
The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offences and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease.”
(Pope John Paul II, Dominicae cenae, 3 C.C.C. 1380)

Because Christ himself is present in the sacrament of the altar, He is to be honoured with the worship of adoration. “To visit the Blessed Sacrament is...a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ our Lord.”
(Pope Paul VI, MF66 C.C.C. 1418)
