CHAPLET FOR THE HOLY SOULS
(For private recitation on ordinary rosary beads)
CREED - I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead, on the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
Our Father - 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.
Hail Mary - Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory Be - Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
On the large beads (or Our Father Beads) say:
"O Holy Souls draw the fire of God's love into my soul, to REVEAL Jesus Crucified in me here on earth, rather than hereafter in Purgatory."
On the small beads (or Hail Mary Beads) say:
"Crucified Lord Jesus, have mercy on the souls in Purgatory."
At the end in place of the Hail Holy Queen, say three times:
"Glory be to the Father."
Jesus, Mary, I love you, save souls.
Jesus, Mary, I love you, save priest's souls.
Jesus, Mary, I love you, save priest's souls, save souls with the great plea to repeat this act of love a thousand times with every heart beat and every breath.
"Eternal Father, I offer You the most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my own family.
"Jesus, Mary, I love You, Save Souls"
