This devotion consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven times Jesus shed His Most Precious Blood.

The Chaplet is divided into 6 groups of 5 beads each and 3 closing beads, for a total of 33 beads in honor of the 33 years in the earthly life of Jesus.

1Jesus shed His Blood in His circumcision We ask for chastity of body and spirit.

2Jesus shed His Blood in the Garden of Olives We ask for the spirit of prayer.

3Jesus shed His Blood in the scourging We ask for patience and self control.

4Jesus shed His Blood in the crown of thorns We ask for the humility to atone for our pride.

5Jesus shed His Blood carrying the Cross We ask for the strength to bear our earthly burdens.

6Jesus shed His Blood in the Crucifixion We ask for contrition.

7Jesus shed His Blood as His side was pierced We ask for the grace of perseverance.

Begin the chaplet by praying

V. Incline unto my aid, O God!
R. O Lord, make haste to help me!
V. Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and the Holy Spirit
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, Amen

The first six decades are prayed in this manner

On each of the five beads, pray one Our Father. Pray one Glory Be and the following prayer on the enamel medal

V. We therefore pray Thee, help Thy servants!
R. Whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood!

At the last decade, on each of the three beads, pray one Our Father.  After this decade, pray one Glory Be and this prayer

V. We therefore pray Thee, help Thy servants!
R. Whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood! Concluding Prayer

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ in atonement for my sins, in supplication for the holy souls in Purgatory and for the needs of Holy Church.
