This impressive rosary/chaplet is designed to guide one in meditating on the Stations of the Cross. The smooth beads are complemented by beautiful metal depictions of each station, and the unique cross features a reverent image of the Head of Christ.
Pray the Stations of the Cross Rosary using the method below:
BEGIN ON THE CRUCIFIX
Make the Sign of the Cross and say the Apostles’ Creed
NEXT FIVE BEADS
Say the Act of Contrition, the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be. On the last pray the Prayer to Jesus Christ Crucified:
My good and dear Jesus, I kneel before you, asking you most earnestly to engrave upon my heart a deep and lively faith, hope, and charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm resolve to make amends. As I reflect upon your five wounds, and dwell upon them with deep compassion and grief, I recall, good Jesus, the words the prophet David spoke long ago concerning yourself: ‘They have pierced my hands and my feet; they have counted all my bones!'
BEFORE EACH STATION
Pray the prayer attributed to St. Francis of Assisi:
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
EACH SET OF 3 BEADS
Meditate on each Station and pray:
Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be
Lord Jesus Christ, your passion and death is the sacrifice that unites earth and heaven and reconciles all people to you. May we who have faithfully reflected on these mysteries follow in your steps and so come to share your glory in heaven where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
