How to Pray the Chaplet of Padre Pio
On each bead, pray:
Oh Jesus, full of grace and charity, victim for sinners,
So impelled by Your love of us that You willed to die on the cross,
I humbly entreat. You to glorify in heaven and on earth,
Your holy servant, Saint Pio of Piertrelcina,
who generously participated in Your sufferings,
who loved You so much and labored so faithfully for the glory of Your heavenly Father and for the good of souls.
With confidence, I beseech You to grant me, through his intercession, this request (mention it) which I ardently desire.
In conclusion, pray: Three Our Fathers, Hail Marys, and Glorias.
