Chaplet of the way of the Cross

  The Chaplet of the Stations of the Cross

This  Chaplet  was granted to the Vincentian order by Pope Pius IX and Pope Pius X. 

In 1912 it was withdrawn by the Holy office as the indulgences can be gained by using the crucifix alone.

 For those who are sick, or those who cannot attend Church to Make the Way of the Cross, the Holy See has granted the privilege of gaining the indulgences attached to the Way of the Cross by holding in their hands the Pardon Crucifix and saying the prayers, The Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be 20 times.

 

The Prayers of The Chaplet of the Way of the Cross 

on the Pardon Crucifix and first six beads of the Chaplet, we pray


The Apostles Creed

(on the Pardon Crucifix) 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and seated at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.


An Act of Contrition 

(On the First Bead)

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.

(on the second bead)

Prayer to Jesus Crucified 

 Here I am, good and gentle Jesus, kneeling before you. With great fervor I pray and ask you to instill in me genuine convictions of faith, hope and love, with true sorrow for my sins and a firm resolve to amend them. While I contemplate your five wounds with great love and compassion, I remember the words which the prophet David long ago put on your lips: "They have pierced my hands and my feet, I can count all my bones." (Psalm 22/17-18).  

(on the third bead)

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them; Amen 

(on the fourth bead)

Our Father

Hail Mary
