CHAPLET OF ALL SOULS

This chaplet, sometimes called the All Souls Rosary, may be recited by using a regular Rosary.

On the Crucifix recite the psalm "Out of the Depths":

Psalm

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord; O Lord, hear my voice!

Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.

If you should remember sins, O Lord; O Lord, who could bear it?

But with you is forgiveness, that you may be served with reverence.

I hope in the Lord, my soul hopes in his word;

My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the dawn.

More than watchmen for the dawn, let Israel wait for the Lord.

For with the Lord is mercy and with him plenteous redemption.

And he shall redeem Israel from all its sins.

On the large beads of the Rosary say the Lord's prayer (Our Father).

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

On the small beads of the Rosary recite the following Invocation:

O good Jesus, have mercy on the souls in purgatory or (mention name) and grant to them eternal rest.

The following prayers may be used with each decade as well as a particular intention for each decade.

First decade: I offer You, my Savior, this first decade for the souls of all of my relatives, through the Precious Blood which You shed for them in Your Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. O good Jesus, have mercy on them!

Say the Our Father. Repeat the Invocation ten times.

Second decade: I offer You, my Savior, this second decade for the souls of all those who have shown me kindness, through the Precious Blood which You shed for them in Your Scourging, O good Jesus, have mercy on them!

Say the Our Father. Repeat the Invocation ten times.

Third decade: I offer You, my Savior, this third decade for the souls of those whom I have at any time offended, through the Precious Blood which You shed for them in carrying Your Cross to Calvary. O good Jesus, have mercy on them! 

Say the Our Father. Repeat the Invocation ten times.

Fourth decade: I offer You, my Savior, this fourth decade for the souls of my friends and companions, through the Precious Blood which You poured forth upon the Cross, and through the sorrows which Mary, our tender Mother, endured at the foot of the Cross. O good Jesus, have mercy on them!

Say the Our Father. Repeat the Invocation ten times.

Fifth decade: I offer You, my Savior, this fifth decade for the soul of my father and/or Mother and/or relative. I offer You, for this soul so dear to me, the Precious Blood and the sacred water from Your Heart, pierced by the lance. O good Jesus, open to this soul the gate of heaven, and grant me the grace to be reunited with it forever in the bosom of Your goodness.

Say the Our Father. Repeat the Invocation ten times.

O good Jesus, have mercy on the souls in purgatory or the soul or souls (mention name) and grant to them eternal rest.
