  • Taken from the Father Lasance  "Prayer Book for Religious" 1904. Pg 575 

    This chaplet for the dead consists of four decades (40 beads) in honour 
    and memory of the forty hours that Our Lord Jesus Christ 
    passed in Limbo to deliver and conduct to heaven all the 
    souls of the saints who died before Him. 

    Begin with the DE PROFUNDIS 

    On the large beads pray: 

    Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual 
    light shine upon them.  May they rest in peace. Amen 
    O my God I believe
    in Thee, because Thou art truth itself. 
    I hope in Thee, because Thou art infinitely merciful. 
    I love Thee with my whole heart and above all things because 
    Thou art infinitely perfect, and I love my neighbour as myself 
    for the love of Thee.

     I am truly sorry for having sinned,  because Thou art infinitely good
     and sin displeases Thee. 
    I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace never more to 
    offend Thee.  Amen.

    On the small beads pray: 

    Sweet heart of Mary be my salvation. 

    Conclude with the DE PROFUNDIS 

    Indulgence of 60 YEARS each time, applicable to the souls in Purgatory
    "Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and them that hate Him flee from before His Holy Face"  Psalm 67:2[/b]
