Chaplet Of The Seven Sorrows Of Mary
by: The Rosary Team

Perhaps you are referring to the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. This can be said using rosary beads but a special rosary called a seven sorrows rosary can be used as well. Rather than meditating on five mysteries, you meditate on the seven dolors or sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary while praying seven sets of seven Hail Marys as opposed to five sets of ten Hail Marys that are prayed during the Rosary. All the other prayers remain the same with the exception of the concluding prayers.

This chaplet ends with three Hail Marys in honor of the tears Our Lady shed at the death of Our Lord. The seven sorrows that you meditate upon are: The Prophecy of Simeon, The Flight into Egypt, The Christ Child being Lost in the Temple, Jesus Meets His Afflicted Mother on the Way to Calvary, The Crucifixion and Death of Our Lord, Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Placed in the Arms of His Mother, Jesus is Placed in the Sepulchre.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
