Chaplet of St. Sharbel
The chaplet is made up of five sets of beads, (3) red sets, (1) white set and (1) blue set. Five black beads divide the sets.
A medal of St. Sharbel connects the beads with one white bead following the medal.
The red beads are for the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, the virtues by which religious share in the Passion of Christ.
The white beads represent love for the Holy Eucharist,
The blue beads represents love and devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
Father of Truth Prayer
Father of truth, behold your Son, a sacrifice pleasing to You. Accept this offering of Him who died for me; behold His blood shed on Golgotha for my salvation. It pleads for me. For His sake, accept my offering. Many are my sins, but greater is Your mercy. When placed on a scale, Your mercy prevails over the weight of the mountains known only to You. Consider the sin and consider the atonement; the atonement is greater and exceeds the sin. Your beloved Son sustained the nail and the lance because of my sins, so in His sufferings You are satisfied and I live.
Prayer to Obtain Graces
Lord, infinitely holy and glorified in Your saints, You have inspired Sharbel, the saint monk, to lead the perfect life of a hermit. We thank you for granting him the blessing and the strength to detach himself from the world so that the heroism of the monastic virtues of poverty, chastity and obedience might triumph in his hermitage. We beseech You to grant us the grace of loving and serving You, following his example.
Almighty God, who have manifested the power of St. Sharbel’s intercession through his countless miracles and favors, grant us this grace...
(State your intention (s) here...) which we request from You through his intercession.
