Precious Blood Chaplet
(PRECIOUS BLOOD FATHERS)
This chaplet consists of 33 beads, in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Lord's life on earth. There are 6 groups of 5 beads each, 3 closing beads, and a medal of the Precious Blood. For each group one says the Our Father 5 times and the Glory be 1 time. On the final group of 3 beads one says the Our Father 3 times and the Glory be 1 time.
In the beginning say: Incline unto my aid, O God. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be, etc.
There are 7 mysteries recalling the occasions on which Our Savior shed His Blood for us. After each group of 5 Our Fathers and 1 Glory be, the following prayer is said: We therefore pray Thee, help Thy servants whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood.
