Saint Francis Xavier Chaplet Prayers
On the Crucifix Pray
Eternal God, Creator of all things, remember that You alone has created the souls of unbelievers, which You have made according to Your image and likeness. Behold, O Lord, how to Your dishonor many of them are falling into hell. Remember, O Lord, Your Son, Jesus Christ, Who so generously shed His blood and suffered for them. Do not permit that Your Son, Our Lord, remain unknown by unbelievers, but, with the help of Your saints and the Church, the Bride of Your Son, remember Your mercy, forget their idolatry and infidelity, and make them know Him, Who You have sent, Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, Who is our Salvation, our Life and our Resurrection, through Whom we have been saved and redeemed, and to Whom is due glory forever. 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
Lord God, by the preaching of Saint Francis Xavier, You brought many nations to Yourself. Give his zeal for the faith to all who believe in You, that Your Church may rejoice in continued growth throughout the world. May this prayer fill us with the same love that inspired Saint Xavier to work for the salvation of all. Help us to live our Christian calling and to inherit the promise of enteral life. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
