Our Lady has called for us to pray for peace in the world, in our families and in our hearts. The chaplet is prayed as follows:
Begin in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Pray the Apostles Creed.
Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be seven times each.
Conclude with the sign of the cross, the sign of our salvation.
In Medjugorje, in the shops of religious articles, there is a strange chaplet of the Rosary, it has in fact, seven times three beads, it is not a commercial bizarre, but it is used to recite seven Our Fathers, Hail Mays and Gloria Bes,
This is an ancient religious practice of Bosnia / Herzegovina. It is recited to venerate the wounds of Jesus, including that of the shoulder and the crown of thorns. When the apparitions in Medjugorje began, Our Lady told the young visionaries that she greatly appreciated this practice but suggested that they introduce it with the recitation of the Creed. From Medjugorje, the Chaplet has spread all over the world.
From the very first apparitions the Gospa asked for the recitation of this chaplet during the apparition of July 3, 1981, she said to the visionaries:
“Before the seven Our Fathers, Hail Mays and Gloria Be(s), always pray the Creed “
In her message of November 16, 1983 , I continue to ask for the holy practice of the seven Hail, Father and Glory:
” Pray at least once a day to the Creed and seven Pater, Ave, Gloria according to my intentions so that , through me, God’s plan can be realized. “
She added that this practice frees souls from purgatory, in fact in the message of July 20, 1982 , he stated:
“ In Purgatory there are many souls and among them also people consecrated to God. Pray for them at least seven Pater Ave Gloria and the Creed. I recommend it! Many souls have been in Purgatory for a long time because no one prays for them. In Purgatory there are different levels: the lowest are close to Hell while the high ones gradually approach Heaven ” .
Our Lady recommended this practice as a thank you at the end of the Holy Mass; the parish of Medjugorje immediately accepted this invitation and still today recites it immediately after the evening mass. For those wishing to recite it at home too, the chaplet is useful that allows you to keep track of the series of Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory to the Father. This chaplet is found on many sites that sell religious material online and at specialty stores
