A Rosary for those who have gone home to be with the Lord.
This rosary consists of 40 beads in memory of the 40 hours
which Our Lord is thought to have spent in Limbo.
There are also the 5 introductory beads as on the Dominican Rosary.
One begins and ends this chaplet with the
De profundis or an Our Father and Hail Mary.
On the large beads is made acts of faith, hope, and charity.
On each small bead is said: "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation."
Each decade is concluded with: "Eternal rest grant unto them, etc."
The final prayer is as follows:
V. Eternal rest grant unto him/her, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light shine upon him/her.
V. May he/she rest in peace.
V. May his/her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
May the love of God and the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ bless us and console us and gently wipe every tear from our eyes:
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
