This chaplet is a perfect devotion for Holy Week or throughout the entire Lenten season.
This devotion consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven main sheddings of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. The Our Father is said five times after each mystery except for the last, when it is said three times——in all thirty-three times in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Savior’s life on earth.
V. O God, come to my assistance!
R. Lord, make haste to help me!
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost,
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Jesus shed His Blood in the Circumcision.
Let us ask for chastity of soul and body.
Our Father five times, Glory be to the Father once.
V. We pray Thee, Lord, help Thy servants!
R. Whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood!
This invocation to the Precious Blood is said after the Our Father and Glory be of each mystery.
Jesus shed His Blood in the Agony while praying in the Garden of Olives.
Let us ask for the spirit of prayer.
Let us ask for patience and self control.
Let us ask for humility to atone for pride.
Let us ask for acceptance of our daily crosses.
Let us ask for contrition.
Let us ask for perseverance.
