The Chaplet of Our Lady’s Tears

isML02FNOPYou will need the Marian Rosary of 59 beads.

Begin as follows:

Replace the Creed with:

“Crucified Jesus! We fall at Your feet and offer You the tears of her who with deep compassionate love accompanied You on Your sorrowful way of the Cross. Grant, O Good Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the tears of Your most holy Mother teach us, so that we may fulfill Your holy will on earth, that we may be worthy to praise and exalt You in Heaven for all eternity.”

Replace the Our Father’s with:

V. ” O Jesus look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth,” R. “And loves You most ardently in Heaven.”

Replace the Hail Mary’s with:

V. “O Jesus, hear our prayers,” R. “For the sake of Your holy Mother’s tears.”

At the end of the Chaplet, say 3 times the following:

V. “O Jesus, look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth,” R. “And loves You most ardently in Heaven.”

Say the following prayers at the end of the Chaplet:

“O Mary, Mother of love, sorrow and mercy, we beg you to unite your prayers with ours so that Jesus, your Divine Son, to Whom we turn may hear our petitions in the name of your maternal tears and may give us in addition to the favours we ask, the crown of everlasting life.” Amen.

Quiet often I do things a little differently. I am on my own, so I just say the V. and the R. by myself. I have never been told personally what V. and R. stands for, but I suppose it is the leader and the follower. Another thing when I said it once, I imagine myself praying with everybody who was asking a favour from Jesus in the whole world. I just believed it made God very happy, so now I do it often. To give somebody who is praying with a little extra help from Mary.
