Chaplet of the Five Wounds

The Chaplet of the Five Wounds is a Passionist chaplet devoted to the Holy Wounds of Jesus.[1]

The chaplet is due to Father Paul Aloysius, the sixth superior general of the Passionists. The devotion also honors the mystery of the risen Christ which has the marks of the Five Wounds. Pope Leo XII approved the chaplet in 1823. [2]

This chaplet must be blessed by the Passionist superior or a delegation from him.[3]

Format of the chaplet

This chaplet has 25 beads, grouped into five sets. The Glory Be to the Father is said on each bead. [4] At the end of each section of beads, a Hail Mary in honor of the sorrows of Mary is said. At the end of the chaplet, three additional Hail Mary's are said in honor of Our Lady's tears.
