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 without the Hail Mary is said five times after each mystery except the last, when it is said three times in all, thirty three times in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Lord"s life on earth.
