Chaplet Of St. Rita
The Saint Rita Chaplet consists of three sets of three beads between a medal on one end and a cross on the other end. Begin the chaplet with the prayer to Saint Rita, and end with the three sets of three prayers on the beads.
O Holy St. Rita, exemplary Augustinian Sister, we honour you for your devotion to the Passion of Christ. Although your early life was filled with disappointment, frustration, and unceasing tragedy, you never lost faith and trust in God. For this you are the patroness of the impossible, and our inspiration and advocate in desperate circumstances.
Then pray an Our Father on each of the first three beads, a Hail Mary on each of the next three beads, and a Glory to the Father on each of the final three beads.
