The Chaplet of All Souls

The Chaplet of All Souls is prayed on the regular rosary.  Each decade is prayed for a particular intention.  This chaplet encompasses both an element of regret for sin and penance (the De Profundis is an indulgenced, penitentiary Psalm), and a plea to God for souls in Purgatory.

On the crucifix:

Make the sign of the cross and pray the De Profundis (Psalm 130)

 

Out of the depths I cry to You, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.

Let Your ears be attentive to my voice in supplication.

If You, O Lord, mark iniquities, Lord, who can stand?

But with You is forgiveness, that You may be revered.

I trust in the Lord; my soul trusts in His word.

My soul waits for the Lord more than sentinels wait for the dawn.

More than sentinels wait for the dawn, let Israel wait for the Lord,

For with the Lord is kindness and with Him is plenteous redemption;

And He will redeem Israel from all their iniquities.

Our Lady of the rosary.

If we have died with him, we will also live with him. If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us. If we are faithless, he remains faithful--for he cannot deny himself.
Timothy 2:11-13
