CHAPLET OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD

Each bead of the Precious Blood Chaplet is, as it were, a chalice filled with the Divine Blood of Jesus, uplifted by Our Lady to the Eternal Father, imploring every grace necessary for your soul and body.

The chaplet consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven principal blood-sheddings of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. The beads number thirty three in honor of the thirty three years the Precious Blood flowed in the veins of Jesus before it was all poured out on the Cross for our salvation. Its seven petitions unite with each of the seven blood-sheddings, making up seven chapters in the gospel of Christ's love for me: "He loved me, and delivered Himself up for me."

To pray this chaplet, recite the Our Father on each of the thirty-three beads, completing each of the seven groups with the Glory Be, as thanksgiving to the Holy Trinity for this great gift of the Precious Blood.

While reciting this chaplet, you are asked to meditate on each of the seven blood-sheddings of Jesus.

V. O God, come to my assistance!

R. Lord, make haste to help me!

V. Glory be to the Father...

R. As it was in the beginning...

Prayers of the Chaplet:

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.
