The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows

The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows consists of 7 groups of 7 beads, with 3 additional beads and a Crucifix.  Say each of the sorrow below followed by 7 Hail Mary's. The 7 groups of 7 Hail Mary's are recited in remembrance of
the 7 Sorrows of Mary:

1. The prophecy of Simeon.
2. The flight into Egypt.
3. The loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.
4. Mary meets Jesus carrying His cross.
5. The Crucifixion
6. Mary received the Body of Jesus from the cross
7. The Body of Jesus is placed in a tomb.

3 Hail Mary's are added in remembrance of the tears Mary shed because of the suffering of her Divine Son. These are said to obtain true sorrow for our sins.
The concluding prayer follows:

V/. Pray for us, O most sorrowful Virgin.
R/. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Lord Jesus, we now implore, both for the present and for the hour of our death, the intercession of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Thy Mother, whose holy soul was pierced at the time of Thy passion by a sword of grief.  Grant us this favor, O Saviour of the world, Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.

Chaplet for the Reparation for Blasphemy
Against the Blessed Mother
(Use Ordinary Rosary Beads)

  (Instead of the Creed and the Our Father Say:)
Mary, my Immaculate Mother, I desire to offer thee reparation for the offenses which thy Immaculate Heart receives from the horrible blasphemies which are uttered against thee. I offer thee these praises to console thee for so many ungrateful children who do not love thee, and to console the Heart of thy Divine Son Who is so deeply offended by the insults offered to thee.

Receive, my Purest Mother, this little act of homage. Make me love thee more each day and look with pity on those blasphemers that they may not delay to cast themselves into thy maternal arms. Amen.

At the beginning of each decade, on the large bead:
Grant that I may praise thee, O Holy Virgin!
Give me strength against thy enemies!

On the 10 small beads, pray:
1. Blessed be the Great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy!
2. Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception!
3. Blessed be her Glorious Assumption!
4. Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother!
5. Blessed be her Immaculate Heart!
6. Blessed be her Virginal Purity!
7. Blessed be her Divine Maternity!
8. Blessed be her Universal Mediation!
9. Blessed be her Sorrows and her Tears!
10. Blessed be the graces with which the Lord crowned her
Queen of Heaven and Earth!

Say at the end of each decade on the large bead:
Glory be to Mary, Daughter of the Father!
Glory be to Mary, Mother of the Son!
Glory be to Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit!

End with this Final Prayer:

My Mother, I love thee for those who do not love thee; I praise thee for those who blaspheme thee; I surrender myself to thee for those who will not recognize thee as their Mother. (5 times)

Chaplet of the Queen of Light

(This chaplet consists of a Sacred Heart Medal and 18 beads.
The beads are divided into 3 decades of 6 beads each.)

On the first bead of each decade, reflect on a meditation and recite one Our Father.
On the other beads say a Hail Mary .

First Meditation
A thousand promises are not worth one small, meaningful prayer.

Second Meditation
My child, it is necessary to keep close to My Divine Son, especially in the Blessed Sacrament.

Third Meditation
I am the Mother of the hopeless; Mother of Sorrows. It is important for those that are suffering to come to me for consolation and for comfort.

CHAPLET OF THE 10 EVANGELICAL VIRTUES OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

This prayer, contained in the Rule of the Ten Virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has been passed on by tradition in the Marian Order. It is meant for private recitation on the Rosary.

First we make the Sign of the Cross and recite one Our Father, followed by ten Hail Marys.
After the words, Holy Mary, Mother of God, mention one virtue in the following order:
1. most pure,
2. most prudent,
3. most humble,
4. most faithful,
5. most devout,
6. most obedient,
7. most poor,
8. most patient,
9. most merciful,
10. most sorrowful,
pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

V. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
R. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

V. In thy Conception, O Virgin Mary, thou wert Immaculate.
R. Pray for us to the Father, Whose Son, Jesus, thou didst bring forth into the world.

V. Let us pray.
Father, Thou didst prepare the Virgin Mary to be the worthy Mother of Thy Son. Thou didst let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would bring by His death and kept her sinless from the first moment of her Conception. Help us by her prayers to live in Thy presence without sin. We ask this in the Name of Jesus the Lord.
R. Amen.

V. May the Virgin Mary's Immaculate Conception
R. Be our health and protection.

Chaplet of Our Lady, Star of the Sea
For Special Needs

Our Lady Star of the Sea, Stella Maris, is the Patroness of the men who sail the seas. Saint Bonaventure reminds us that she also "guides to a landfall in Heaven those who navigate the sea of this world in the ship of innocence or penance." Ships at sea might be guided by the North Star. Our Lady, Star of the Sea, aids not only the sailors aboard those ships, she also aids all those who sail the stormy seas of life.

The Medal Prayer:

A Prayer to the Blessed Virgin

Most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein you are my Mother.

   Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech thee from the bottom of my heart, to succor me in this necessity; there are none that can withstand thy power.

First Three Beads:

One Our Father, one Hail Mary, one Glory Be on each of the three beads for Bishop Warren Boudreaux, Pope Benedict XVI and Father John Paul Finke.
