Saint Margaret of Cortona Chaplet Prayers
On the Medal Pray
Blessed Saint Margaret of Cortona, you lived as a single mother and know well the struggles of raising a child. You experienced firsthand the stresses and difficulties of being a single mother and you know what it is like to be judged by others and treated as someone who is considered unworthy.
Pray sweet saint for those men and women who are raising children on their own, especially (NAME PERSON).
Intercede before the throne of God with the angels and all the saints that they be blessed with the support they need, with a safe home, with financial stability, and with the grace and strength they need to be loving and patient parents for their child(ren).
Please continue to pray for all single parents and the children they love, care for, and support. 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 Crucifix Pray
Help me to be both Mother and Father to my children. Keep me healthy and strong on those days when I am weak. Remind me to love them in the same way that you have shown that special love for me. Amen.
