CHAPLET OF TEARS OF BLOOD OF MARY

SEVEN MYSTERIES:

1. The prophecy of Simeon. (St. Luke 2:34, 35)
2. The flight into Egypt. (St. Matthew 2:13, 14)
3. The loss of the Child Jesus in the temple. (St. Luke 2: 43-45)
4. The meeting of Jesus and Mary on the Way of the Cross.
5. The Crucifixion.
6. The taking down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross.
7. The burial of Jesus.

IN THE THREE FIRST BEADS:
"O Jesus, look upon the tears of blood of Her who loved Thee most while on earth and who loves Thee most intimately in Heaven''.


INITIAL PRAYER: "Crucified Jesus, prostrate at Thy feet, we offer Thee the tears of blood of Her, who with devotional sympathetic love accompanied Thee on Thy painful way to Calvary. Grant, O good Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the blood-stained tears of Thy most holy Mother taught us, so that we may fulfil Thy holy will on earth and become worthy to praise and bless Thee in Heaven for all eternity. Amen.


ON THE LARGE BEAD:
"O Jesus, look upon the tears of blood of Her who loved Thee most while on earth and who loves Thee most intimately in Heaven''.


ON THE SMALLS BEADS (SEVEN TIMES):
"O Jesus, hear our petitions for the sake of the tears of blood shed by Thy dearest Mother''.


IN THE THREE FINAL BEADS:
"O Jesus, look upon the tears of blood of Her who loved Thee most while on earth and who loves Thee most intimately in Heaven''.


FINAL PRAYER:

"O Mary, mother of love, of sorrows and of mercy, we beg thee, join Thy prayers with ours so that Jesus Thy Divine Son, to whom we turn, will graciously hear our petitions in the name of Thy maternal tears of blood, and, together with the graces we implore, grant us finally the reward of eternal life. Amen. 

With thy tears of blood, O sorrowful Mother, destroy the rule of satan. Through Thy divine tenderness, O bound and fettered Jesus, defend the world from the errors which threaten it.
