THE CHAPLET OF ALL SOULS

How to pray the Chaplet of Our Lady’s Tears

This devotion is prayed on the popular Marian Rosary of 59 beads.

On the Crucifix, recite the Psalm “Out of the Depths.”

OUT OF THE DEPTHS
Also known as “De Profundis”
(Psalm 130)

Out of the depths I call to you, Lord.
O Lord, listen to my cry.
Be attentive to the sound of my pleading.

If you, Lord, note all our offences,
who then, O Lord, could stand?
But with you is forgiveness,
For which we revere you.

I wait for the Lord, my soul awaits;
I hope in his word.
My soul waits for the Lord,
more than watchmen wait for dawn,
more than watchmen awaiting the dawn.

Israel, hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord
there is mercy and generous redemption.
It is he who redeems Israel from all their sins.

On the large beads, say the “Lord’s Prayer.”

endured at the foot of the Cross.
O good Jesus,
have mercy on them!”

and the sacerd water from Your Heart,
pierced by the lance.
O good Jesus,
open to this soul the gate of heaven,
and grant me the grace
to be reunited with it
forever in the bosom of Your goodness.”

Say the Our Father.
