MONTH OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS – SECOND DAY

Chaplet of the Most Precious Blood

The Chaplet of the Precious Blood, also known as the Precious Blood Rosary

Seven “effusions of the Blood of Christ”, implicitly or explicitly mentioned in the Gospels, are recalled in a series of biblical meditations and devotional prayers:

The Blood of the Circumcision, the Blood of the Garden of Gethsemane, the Blood of the Flagellation, the Blood of the Crowning of Thorns, the Blood of the Carrying of the Cross, the blood of the Crucifixion, the Blood flowing from Christ’s side pierced by the lance. 

This Chaplet is divided into seven groups, containing thirty-three “Our Fathers” in honor of the thirty-three years Our Savior’s life on earth before it was poured out on the Cross for our salvation. 

After each group, the “Glory be to the Father” is recited in thanksgiving to the Holy Trinity for this great gift of the Precious Blood. While reciting these prayers, meditate on each of the seven blood sheddings of Jesus.

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.
