Chaplet of The Precious Blood Prayer

Precious Blood chaplet information

This chaplet consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven principal sheddings of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. The Our Father without the Hail Mary is said five times after each mystery except the last, when it is said three times - in all, thirty-three times in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Lord's life on earth.

V. 0 God, come to my assistance!
