How to pray the Chaplet of Our Lady of Perpetual Help
The Chaplet of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is prayed on the regular Rosary of Mary.
Each decade has one prayer for the larger bead and another prayer that is said 10 times for the smaller beads. It goes as follows:
On the larger beads:
“O Mother of Perpetual Help,
Listen to our pleading souls,
You can help us in our needs,
Mary, with hope, we call on you.”
On the smaller beads:
“O Mary, help us!”
When completing each decade, say:
“Mary has helped us,
Mary wants to help us,
Mary can help us.
Mary will help us.”
After completing the five decades of the Holy Rosary, on each of the 3 small beads, say the Hail Mary…, this followed by the Glory Be….
Upon completing the Chaplet, say the following prayer:
“We fly to your patronage,
O Holy Mother of God.
Despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us from all dangers,
O ever glorious and blessed Virgin Mary.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!”
