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.
V. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
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.
