Sacred Heart Chaplet

This chaplet is made of 39 beads - 6 large, and 33 small - a centerpiece, crucifix, and a Sacred Heart medal.

The order is as follows:  the crucifix and medal, a large bead, three small ones, another large bead, and a centerpiece; and then a circlet of 5 groups of 6 small knots separated by a large one.  

The small beads represent the 33 years of the mortal life of our Lord. The first 30 - the circlet - call to mind the years of his private life and are divided into 5 groups of 6. The 3 near the crucifix recall his public life.

On the crucifix, pray the Anima Christi:

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds hide me.
Separated from Thee let me never be.
From the malignant enemy, defend me.
At the hour of death, call me.
And close to Thee bid me.
That with Thy saints I may be
Praising Thee, forever and ever. Amen.

On the small beads say:

Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love.

On the large beads say:

O Sweetest Heart of Jesus, I implore
that I may ever love thee more and more.

After each grouping, say:

Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation.

To End: Finish on the centerpiece and pray:

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament
be praised and adored and loved with grateful affection,
at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world,
even to the end of time. Amen.
