Our Lady, Queen of Peace Chaplet Prayers
On the Medal Pray
To you, O Mary, we turn our gaze with stronger trepidation, to you we hasten back with more insistent trust in these times scarred by a multitude of doubts and fears for the present and future destiny of our planet.
To you, the first-fruits of humanity redeemed by Christ, set free at last from the slavery of evil and sin, we raise together our heartfelt, trusting plea:
listen to the cry of pain of the war victims, of the victims of the many forms of violence that bathe the Earth in blood.
Dispel the shadows of sorrow and of loneliness, of hatred and of revenge. Open to forgiveness the minds and hearts of all!
Queen of Peace, pray for us!
Mother of mercy and of hope, obtain for the men and women of the third millennium the precious gift of peace; peace in hearts and families, in communities and among peoples;
peace above all for those nations where people fight and die every day. Obtain that every human being of every race and culture may encounter and accept Jesus, who came down to Earth in the mystery of Christmas to give ‘his” peace to us.
O Mary, Queen of Peace, give us Christ, the world’s true Peace!
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 Crucifix Pray
Hail, thou most sublime Queen of Peace, most holy Mother of God! By the Sacred Heart of Jesus, thy Son, the Prince of Peace, appease His anger and obtain that He may reign over us in peace. Remember, O most sweet Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who had recourse to thee was left unaided. Full of confidence I come to thee, Mother of the Word Incarnate; despise not my prayers, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.
