Chaplet of the Precious Blood of Jesus

During those times in our lives when we do not feel God’s love, it is most beneficial to meditate on Jesus’ crucifixion and the many wounds he suffered out of love for us. It freshens in our minds the great pain Jesus endured and the profound depth of his love.

This devotion consists of the seven principal sheddings of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. The Our Father is said five times after each mystery, except the last, when it is said three times, in all, the Our Father is said thirty-three times in honor of the thrity-three years of Our Lord's life on earth.
