Chaplet for the Dead

 

This rosary consists of four decades (40 beads) in memory of the forty hours which Our Lord is thought to have spent in Limbo.       There are also the 5 introductory beads as on the Dominican Rosary. 

On the large beads say:
"Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual Light shine upon them; may the souls of the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen."

On each small bead is said:
"Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation.

The final prayer is as follows:
Let us Pray.  O God, the creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of your servants departed the remission of all their sins, that through pious supplications they may obtain  the pardon which they have always desired,
V. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light shine upon them.
V. May they rest in peace.
R. Amen.
V. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
R. Amen.
V. May the love of God and the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ bless us and console us and gently wipe every tear from our eyes:
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

R. Amen.

Conclude with DE PROFUNDIS (Psalm 130)

Psalm 130
Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.
Let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
If Thou, O Lord, shalt observe iniquities; Lord, who shall endure it?
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and by reason of Thy law, I have waited for Thee, O Lord.
My soul hath relied on His word; my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
Because with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him plentiful redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel from all her iniquities.

[In conclusion]
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Let us pray.
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful,
grant to the souls of Thy servants departed the remission of all their sins, that through our pious supplication they may obtain that pardon which they have always desired; who lives and reigns for ever and ever.  Amen.
