Prayer in Honor of the Five Wounds of Jesus
Prayers and Practices
Various prayers and practices are derived from devotion to the wounds of Christ. One of them is the Chaplet of the Five Wounds, promoted by the Passionists, which was approved by the church in 1823. It consists of five parts of beads honoring the five wounds of Jesus, in his hands, his feet and his heart. Five times the prayer: "Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and will be forever," is said, followed by the "Hail Mary" in honor of Mary's sorrows on Calvary.
