It is a wonderful grace, to be able to be blessed by Jesus Christ in Person. This is what happens during the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament in the Catholic Church. FromRome.Info recorded the Benediction which was done yesterday, by Don Enrico Maria Roncaglia, O.S.B., a priest who celebrates all the Sacraments in communion with Pope Benedict.
For those of you who would like to make a spiritual communion while watching this Video, here is a text, recommended by Br. Bugnolo:
A Spiritual communion
O Immaculate Queen of Heaven and Earth, Mother of God and Mediatrix of every grace: I believe that Thy dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is truly, really, and substantially contained in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

O my Jesus, I embrace Thee as One who has already come, and I unite myself entirely to Thee. Never permit me to be separated from Thee. Amen.

Thank you for that explanation.

Our new priest gave this sermon, “You all appreciate a blessing from a priest, more so from a Bishop and even more so by the Holy Father himself. This Friday Jesus will give you His own personal blessing”. I went with great excitement to receive this blessing. I heard for the first time in person, Latin Gregorian Chant, Tantum Ergo and Oh Salutaris Hostia. The chanting of these hymns had a powerful impact on me. Then the blessing from Jesus Himself, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. I wish the whole world to have the experience I had
