How to pray the Chaplet of Saint Rita
The Chaplet of Saint Rita is prayed on 3 sets of 3 blue beads that have a medal on one end and a cross on the other end. Example: Medal + 3 + 3 + 3 + Cross.
Begin with the following prayer:
O Holy St. Rita,
exemplary Augustinian Sister,
we honour you for your devotion
to the Passion of Christ.
Although your early life
was filled with disappointment,
frustration, and unceasing tragedy,
you never lost faith and trust in God.
For this you are the patroness
of the impossible,
and our inspiration
and advocate in desperate circumstances.
Then, pray 3 “Our Father”,
3 “Hail Mary”, and
3 “Glory be”.
