Saint Catherine of Siena Chaplet Prayers

On the Medal Pray

I see that you have endowed your vicar by nature with a fearless heart; so I humbly, imploringly beg you to pour the light beyond nature into the eye of His understanding.  For unless this light, acquired through pure affection for virtue is joined with it, a heart such as His tends to be proud.

Today, again, let every selfish love be cut away from those enemies of yours and from the vicar and from us all so that we may be able to forgive those enemies when you bend their hardness.

For them, that they may humble themselves and obey this Lord of ours, I offer You my life from this moment and for whenever You wish me to lay it down for Your glory.

(A prayer of Catherine of Siena)

Pray the Our Father on each of the first three beads

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Pray the Hail Mary on each of the next three beads

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.  Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

Pray the Glory Be on the final set of three beads

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end.

On the Crucifix pray

God of Wisdom, You made our sister, Catherine, burn with divine love in contemplating the Lord's passion and in serving Your Church.  With the help of her prayers, may Your people, united in the mystery of Christ, rejoice forever in the revelation of His glory, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
