General information

The Chaplet of the Five Wounds is a Passionist chaplet devoted to the Holy Wounds of Jesus as a means to promote devotion to the Passion of Christ.

The chaplet was inspired by 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.

This chaplet should be blessed by the Passionist superior or a delegation from him.

There is a "5 wounds Rosary" in existence. Our research suggests this is not recognised by The Catholic Church. A Rosary is by definition, Marian in spirituality (from the Bower of Roses in The song of songs). The spirituality around the 5 wounds is not principally Marian. While we would never wish to discourage the practice of prayer, we would like to be part of upholding the depth of Spirituality in both the Marian tradition and the theology that underpins meditating on suffering and sacrifice for love, as in praying the 5 wounds Chaplet. We feel both loose something when mixed together.


FORMAT

This chaplet has 25 beads, grouped into five sets. The Gloria Patri  (Glory Be) is said on each bead. 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 Marys are said in honor of her tears.

 

The following are optional Versions of prayers. We have not been able to trace the original source or history of these.
