Chaplet in Praise of the Virgin Mary
Reparation for Blasphemies
On the crucifix
Make the sign of the cross, then pray:
Mary, my Immaculate Mother,
I desire to offer thee reparation for the offenses which thy Immaculate Heart receives from the horrible blasphemies which are uttered against thee.
I offer thee these praises to console thee for so many ungrateful children who do not love thee,
and to console the Heart of thy Divine Son Who is so deeply offended by the insults offered to thee.
Receive, my Purest Mother, this little act of homage. Make me love thee more each day and look with pity on those blasphemers, that they may not delay to cast themselves into thy maternal arms. Amen.
Move to the large bead just under the center medal and pray:
Grant that I may praise thee, O Holy Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
On the ten beads of 1st decade, pray these praises in order:
1st bead: Blessed be the Great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy!
2nd bead: Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception!
3rd bead: Blessed be her Glorious Assumption!
4th bead: Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother!

8th bead: Blessed be her Universal Mediation!
9th bead: Blessed be her Sorrows and her Tears!
10th bead: Blessed be the graces with which the Lord crowned her Queen of Heaven and Earth!
On the chain segment following the decade, pray:
Glory be to Mary, Daughter of the Father! Glory be to Mary, Mother of the Son! Glory be to Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit!
Continue the following decades in the same manner, praying the Grant, the praises and the Daughter prayers.
Concluding prayer on the center medal:
I love thee for those who do not love thee;
I praise thee for those who blaspheme thee;
I surrender myself to thee for those who will not recognize thee as their Mother. Amen.
(Repeat the concluding prayer 5 times)
