    O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You! (3 times)

    iii. Our Father

    iv. Hail Mary

    v. The Apostle’s Creed

    vi. On Large beads:

    Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly Beloved Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

    vii. On the Ten Small Beads of Each Decade

    For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

    viii. Repeat for the remaining decades

    ix. Conclude with Holy God (Repeat three times)

    Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

    x.Closing Prayer (Optional)

    Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible; look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. 

    Jesus, I Trust in You (3 times)

  • Chaplet of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    Introduction Prayer

    Pray the Anima Christi prayer:
    Soul of Christ, sanctify me, Body of Christ, save me, Blood of Christ, inebriate me, Water from Christ’s side, wash me, Passion of Christ, strengthen me, O good Jesus, 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 I may praise Thee with Thy saints and with Thy Angels forever and ever. Amen.
    For each of the 5 mysteries (on the large beads) pray:
    Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.

    On the small beads, pray:
    Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love.

    At the end of each mystery, pray:
    Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation

    Concluding Prayer
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
    Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
    May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised, glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the world now and forever more. Amen.

    Five Mysteries of the Sacred Heart Chaplet
    You may meditate on these mysteries, or others, while praying the chaplet. Because the decades are short, it is not recommended that you fix one mystery per decade. Instead, dwell on a mystery for as long as it is helpful, move on to a different mystery if you feel drawn to.
    i. The Entry into Jerusalem in which our Savior, meek and humble of heart and riding on a donkey, entered triumphantly into the City of David and his people sang Hosanna.
    ii. The Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane in which Christ suffered affliction out of love for sinful and disobedient humanity and asked his disciples to remain, pray and keep vigil with him.
    iii. The Road to Emmaus in which Christ accompanied his disciples and interpreted the scriptures for them. Their hearts burned within them, and he revealed himself in the breaking of the bread.
    iv. The Blessed Sacrament, which is given to humanity through the Mystery of the Altar, reposed in the tabernacle, and exposed for Eucharistic Adoration, within which God is really, truly and substantially present.
    v. The Image of the Sacred Heart, which represents Christ’s Sacred Humanity, the interior life of his soul, and his affection of merciful love for humanity.

  • Chaplet of the Infant Jesus

    Beads: There are three and twelve for this chaplet.

    History:
    This chaplet to the Holy Infant owes its origin to the zeal of Venerable Marguerite of the Blessed Sacrament of Beaune (France) who died in 1648 at age 27. It centers on the mystery of Jesus Christ’s infancy, highlighting especially purity of heart and innocence.

    Method:

    Our Father (3x) in honor of the Holy Family (3 beads)
    Before each Our Father say: And the word became flesh, and lived among us.

    Hail Mary (12x) in honor of the twelve years of Jesus’ infancy
    Before the first Hail Mary say: And the word became flesh, and lived among us.

    At the end of the chaplet say: Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us.

    This chaplet (3 and 12 beads) has a medal with the image of the Holy Infant. It bears on its back the following invocation:

    Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Your Cross, and I accept all the crosses You will be pleased to send me. Adorable Trinity, I offer You for the glory of the Holy Name of God all the adorations of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus.
