Saint Mary of the Cross (MacKillop) Chaplet Prayers
On the Crucifix Pray
Ever generous God, You inspired Saint Mary MacKillop To live her life faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and constant in bringing hope and encouragement to those who were disheartened, lonely or needy. With confidence in your generous providence and through the intercession of Saint Mary MacKillop, we ask that you grant our request (mention request).
We ask that our faith and hope be fired afresh by the Holy Spirit so that we too, like Mary MacKillop, may live with courage, trust and openness. Ever generous God hear our prayer. We ask this through Jesus Christ. Amen.
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. Amen.
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. Amen.
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. Amen.
On the Medal Pray
Faithful and devoted Virgin Saint Mary of the Cross, you have said, “Never see a need
without doing something about it;” have pity on me. You know the multitude and diversity of my needs. Graciously hear me and deign to obtain from God
a favorable hearing for this my request (mention your request here).
I am firmly convinced that through your merits united with the merits of the death and passion of Jesus your spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of you: and in the joy of my heart I will bless God who is admirable in His saints.
