The Chaplet of the Ten Evangelical Virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary This prayer, contained in the Rule of the Ten Virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has been passed on by tradition in the Marian Order. It is meant for private recitation on the rosary.

First of all we make the sign of the Cross, then we recite one Our Father followed by ten Hail Mary's, mentioning after the words "Holy Mary, Mother of God" one virtue, in the following order:

1. Most pure,
2. Most prudent,
3. Most humble,
4. Most faithful,
5. Most devout,
6. Most obedient,
7. Most poor,
8. Most patient,
9. Most merciful,
10. Most sorrowful,

. . . pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

V. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.
V. In Your Conception, O Virgin Mary, You were Immaculate.
R. Pray for us to the Father whose son, Jesus, you brought forth into the world.

Let us pray.
Father, you prepared the virgin Mary to be the worthy mother of your Son. You let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would bring by his death, and kept her sinless from the first moment of her conception. Help us by her prayers to live in your presence without sin. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. R. Amen.

V. The Virgin Mary's Immaculate Conception
R. Be our Health and our Protection.
