Hi, guys —

Good morning,

I recently found a metal attached to something like a Rosary. It has 33 beads that are equally spaced. The metal reads:

"Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us."

It also says you receive 300 day's indulgence — each time.

What is this and what prayers do you say?

Thank you and have a blessed day.

  { Can you tell me what type of Catholic sacramental I've come across; it has 33 beads? }

Mike replied:

Hi Lynn,

It is the Chaplet of the Blessed Sacrament.

This consists of a medal of the Blessed Sacrament and 33 beads, representing the 33 years that Jesus lived on earth.

On the medal say:

"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:

"O Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us!"

If you don't have a good foundation of what indulgences are, these two postings should solidify your understanding:

Hope this helps,


Lynn replied:

Thank you Mike.

This is very helpful.

Have a blessed Sunday.
