Each bead of the Precious Blood Chaplet is, as it were, a chalice filled with Divine Blood of Jesus, uplifted by Our Lady to the Eternal Father, imploring every grace necessary for your soul and body.

This Chaplet is divided into seven groups, containing thirty-three "Our Fathers" in honor of the thirty-three years during which the Precious Blood flowed in the veins of Jesus, before it was poured out on the Cross for our salvation. After each group, the "Glory be to the Father" is recite in thanksgiving to the Holy Trinity for this great gift of the Precious Blood. While reciting these prayers, you are asked to meditate on each of the seven bloodsheddings of Jesus

The "Our Father" is Christ's own prayer. It is a complete prayer, including every possible desire for the glory of God and the needs of soul and body. Its seven petitions unite in a very practical way with each of the bloodsheddings, making up seven chapters in the gospel of Christ's love for me: 'He loved me, and delivered Himself up for me."

    V. O God, come to my assistance.
    R. Lord, make haste to help me.
    V. Glory be to the Father, etc.
    R. As it was in the beginning, etc.
