Chaplet of the Precious Blood

About the Chaplet of the Precious Blood

This devotion consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven principal sheddings of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. The Our Father is said five times after each mystery, except the last, when it is said three times, in all, the Our Father is said thirty-three times in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Lord’s life on earth.
