The chaplet consists of a medal, a large bead and a circlet of 23 beads - one for each year of St. Aloysius' life.
On the Medal:
Sign of the Cross
Act of Contrition
O my God,
I am heartily sorry for having offended you,
and I detest all my sins,
because of Your just punishments,
but most of all because they offend You, my God,
who are all-good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace,
to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
On the Single Bead:
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
On the 23 Beads:
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Saint Aloysius, pray for us.
Father of Love,
giver of all good things,
in St. Aloysius you combined remarkable innocence with a spirit of penance.
By the help of his prayers
may we who have not followed his innocence
follow his example of penance.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
