How to pray the Chaplet of Saint Gertrude
The Chaplet of Saint Gertrude is prayed on the commonly known and popular Marian Rosary of 59 beads: Cross + 1 + 3 + 1 + Medal / 10 + 1 + 10 + 1 + 10 + 1 + 10 + 1 + 10.
Beginning at the Cross, pray the “Apostle’s Creed”.
This is followed by 1 “Our Father”,
3 “Hail Mary” and
1 “Glory be”.
Starting on the Medal and then on the 4 large beads between each decade (sets of 10 beads), pray the “Our Father.”
On each of the small beads (in the sets of 10 beads), say the following prayer:
I offer Thee
the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus,
in union with the Masses said throughout the world today,
for all the holy souls in Purgatory,
for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the universal Church,
those in my own home,
and within my family.
At the end of each set of 10 beads, say the following prayers:
“Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
open the hearts and minds of sinners
to the truth and light of God, the Father.”
“Immaculate Heart of Mary,
pray for the conversion of sinners and the world.”
and 1 “Glory be.”
(For your information, Saint Gertrude was told by Our Lord Jesus that each time the faithful prays the above prayer “Most Sacred Heart of Jesus…” 1,000 souls are released from Purgatory. When praying the entire Chaplet, the prayer is said 50 times. That means 50,000 souls are released from Purgatory through your devotion. Thank you for your interest in the souls of Purgatory. You shall be remembered in Heaven.)
