The Commutation for the Sunday Obligation changes starting October 1st
The commutation now applies only to those persons who are at higher risk for the Coronavirus (according to the CDC, those who are 60+ years of age, those with underlying medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, COPD, kidney disease, or are immuno-compromised).  Persons not in this vulnerable group are encouraged to return to Mass and the Sacraments. 
 
For those to whom it applies, the Sunday Commutation may be fulfilled by one of the following:
(1) Meditating on the Sunday Mass Readings followed by the Prayer of Humble Access or the Anima Christi, or
 
(2) Family recitation of the Holy Rosary.

The Prayer of Humble Access

We do not presume to come to this thy Table,
O merciful Lord,
trusting in our own righteousness,
but in thy manifold and great mercies.
We are not worthy so much
as to gather up the crumbs
under thy Table.
But thou art the same Lord,
whose property is always to have mercy:
Grant us therefore, gracious Lord,
so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ,
and to drink his blood,
that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. 
Amen.

The Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, save me;

Blood of Christ, inebriate me;

Water from the side of Christ, wash me;

Passion of Christ, strengthen me;

O good Jesu, hear me;

Within thy wounds hide me;

Suffer me not to be separated from thee;

From the malicious enemy defend me;

In the hour of my death call me;

And bid me come unto thee;

That with thy Saints I may praise thee;

For ever and ever. Amen.
