Invocations in Honor of the Holy Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ


(May be said on the rosary beads or as a single prayer)

On the large beads:  Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ to heal the wounds of our souls.

On the small beads:  My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of Thy Sacred Wounds. Amen.

(Sister Mary Martha Chambon, a humble lay sister of the Visitation Order of Chambery, France, who died in the odor of sanctity, March 21st 1907, received these two invocations from Our Lord Himself, as she affirmed, and with them a double mission to adore and invoke the Sacred Wounds unceasingly and to revive this devotion in the hearts of creatures.

Our Lord said, "The soul who during life has honored and studied the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and has offered them to the Eternal Father for the souls in Purgatory, will be accompanied at the moment of death by the Holy Virgin and the angels; and Our Lord on the Cross all brilliant in glory will receive her and crown her...I will grant all that is asked of Me by the invocation of My Holy Wounds.")
