Chaplet of Conversion

How to pray the Chaplet of Conversion

The devotion to the Chaplet of Conversion is prayed on the most popular 59 beads Marian Rosary which is one of the Catholic Church Sacramentals.

On the crucifix, being with the “I Believe In God..” for the unbelievers of the world.

On the first bead pray, the “Our Father…” for the grace of conversion of the world.

On the second bead pray a “Hail Mary…” to honour the Father for the exaltation of Mary, a mere creature, and for choosing to honour her with the title, “Queen of heaven and Mediatrix of all graces.”

On the third bead pray the “Hail, Holy Queen…”

On the medal, say the following prayer,

“O Holy Mother,
I join you at the foot of your Son’s Cross
to implore mercy
and conversion for the souls of the world.
With you, I offer the Wounds of your Son, Jesus,
to the Father,
in atonement for the sins of the world past,
present and to come.”

On each of the small beads, say,

“Through the Sorrowful, Bleeding,
Immaculate Heart of Mary,
and in union with the suffering of her Son,
Jesus, on the Cross,
I implore of the Father,
the grace of the conversion for the world.”

On each of the large beads, say a “Hail Mary…” in honour of Mary’s Tears of Sorrow.

After the “Hail Mary” on each large bead, say,

“Holy Mother Mary,
Mediatrix of all graces,
obtain for us from God,
the conversion of the world.

Then say 3 “Glory Be…” in honour of the Blessed Trinity.

When finishing the Chaplet, say the prayer “Hail, Holy Queen…”.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

Why do we pray?

We pray:

  1. to adore God, expressing to Him our love and loyalty;
  2. to thank Him for His favors;
  3. to obtain from Him the pardon of our sins and the remission of their punishment;
  4. to ask for graces and blessings for ourselves and others.

Watch and pray, that you may not enter into temptation. (Matthew 26:41)

How should we pray?

We should pray:

  1. with attention;
  2. with a conviction of our own helplessness and our dependence upon God;
  3. with a great desire for the graces we beg of Him;
  4. with loving trust in His goodness;
  5. with perseverance.

And all things whatever you ask for in prayer, believing, you shall receive. (Matthew 21:22)

For whom should we pray?

We should pray especially for ourselves, for our parents, relatives, friends, and enemies, for sinners, for the souls in purgatory, for the Pope, bishops, and priests of the Church, and for the officials of our country.

But I say to you, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who persecute and calumniate you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:44-45)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)
