Chaplet of Our Lady of Sorrows
HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY OF TEARS:
THE CHAPLET IS PRAYED
WITH REGULAR ROSARY BEADS.
INSTEAD OF THE CREED,
We fall at Your feet and offer You the tears of her who with deep compassionate
love accompanied You on Your sorrowful Way of the Cross. Grant, O Good
Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the tears of Your most
holy Mother teach us, so that we may fulfill Your holy will on earth, that
we may be worthy to praise and exalt You in Heaven for all eternity.
INSTEAD OF THE OUR
V. O Jesus, look
upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth
R. And loves You
most ardently in Heaven.
INSTEAD OF THE HAIL
V. O Jesus, hear
R. For the sake of
Your most holy Mother's tears.
At the end repeat
three times on the small beads the invocations that replace the Our Father.
Conclude with this
O Mary, Mother of
love, sorrow and mercy, we beg you to unite your prayers with ours so that
Jesus, your Divine Son, to Whom we turn may hear our petitions in the name
of your maternal tears and may give us in addition to the favors we ask,
the crown of everlasting life. Amen.
