Sacred Heart Chaplet

The Chaplet of the Sacred Heart of Jesus has 33 red beads, separated into five groups of six, to represent the years of Jesus’ life.  The chaplet also has a centerpiece, which is usually the Heart of Jesus center, a Sacred Heart Medal, and a crucifix.  The Chaplet is prayed as follows.

Begin with the following prayer on the Crucifix:

“Soul of Christ,
sanctify me!
Body of Christ,
save me!
Blood of Christ,
inebriate me!
Water from the side of Christ,
wash me!
Passion of Christ,
strengthen me!
O good Jesus hear me!
Within Thy wounds hide me;
Permit me not to be separated from Thee;
from the malignant enemy,
defend me;
in the hour of death,
call me and bid me come over to Thee,
that with Thy saints
I may praise Thee forever and ever,

Amen.”

On the large beads say:

“O Sweetest Heart of Jesus,
I implore that I may ever love Thee more and more.”

On the small beads beads say:

“Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love.”

At the end of each decade, say:

“Sweet Heart of Mary,
be my salvation.”

Upon completing the Chaplet, say:

“May the Heart of Jesus
in the Most Blessed Sacrament,
be blessed, adored and praised
with grateful affection,
at every moment
in all the Tabernacles of the world,
even to the end of time.”
