World Peace Chaplet with Azurite and Malachite

The beads of this traditional chaplet are made of swirling azurite and malachite, reminiscent of our planet, and so this chaplet is offered for World Peace.  A bronze-capped 10mm round is used for the Credo bead, and the remainder are 8mm rounds.  The 2" bronze crucifix is inscribed with the words "Peace with God, Peace with my Neighbors, Peace Amongst Nations".

Peace Chaplet with brecciated jasper cubes and icon crucifix

This rugged chaplet is built of brick-colored 7mm cubes brecciated jasper.  The Credo bead is carved red tiger-iron.  The chaplet is completed by a two-sided bronze crucifix, with the crucified Christ on one side, the risen Christ on the obverse, both surrounded with saints and angels.

Peace Chaplet with lapiz cubes and bronze Cross of Orleans

This chaplet features a cross with the image of St. Joan, a Patron of the Military... a powerful intercessor for this time of conflict.   This one-of-a-kind chaplet combines 8mm cubes of lapis lazuli with handmade lampwork (for the Credo bead)  floating sapphire crystals over a sea of molten silver.   The 2" bronze Lorraine cross , entwined with a thistle (the symbol of Lorraine, France), shows the young Joan with flowing hair, surrounded by fleur-de-lis.

Prayer for Peace

Pope John Paul II

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace,
who are yourself our peace and reconciliation,
who so often said, "Peace to you," grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend
the great gift of peace.
May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.

Peace Chaplet Prayers

The Peace Chaplet contains 21 beads,
arranged in seven groups of three beads,
and pendant (which may be a bead, medal, or crucifix).

The 'Peace Chaplet', composed of
The Apostles Creed,
and 7 times the Pater Noster, Ave Maria, and Gloria
is the 'Worker's Rosary' that the Blessed Mother will never refuse to hear
if prayed from the heart.
Seven is the number of perfection in the Bible which makes the 
Peace Chaplet a perfect shorter prayer.

Beginning on the pendant, pray
The Apostles’ Creed
For each group of three beads, pray
Our Father
Hail Mary, and

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

Our Father, who art in Heaven; hallowed by Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. 
Holy Mary, mother of God, 
pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be.

The Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

0h divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.

Coronilla de los siete PadreNuestros, AveMarías y Glorias: 
"Rosario de la Paz"

El rezo de la coronilla de los siete PadreNuestros, AveMarías y Glorias, es una devoción conocida de nuestra Iglesia, y que ya se rezaba en Medjugorje antes del inicio de las apariciones de la Sma. Virgen.

En los comienzos de las apariciones, Nuestra Madre Reina de la Paz invitó a rezar esta coronilla por la Paz --- en el mundo, en nuestros corazones, en nuestras familias --- de ahí que se lo ha conocido como el "Rosario de la Paz" , si bien no es propiamente el Rezo del Santo Rosario. Luego vendrán sus invitaciones a rezar el tercio del Santo Rosario ( 5 misterios) y más tarde el Rosario completo (15 misterios).

De hecho, hasta el día de hoy en San Santiago Apóstol, Parroquia de Medjugorje, al terminar cada Santa Misa, los celebrantes y los todos fieles puestos de rodillas, continúan rezando todos los días la coronilla de los siete PadreNuestros, AveMarías y Glorias.

Este rezo consiste en la recitación - ¡Con el corazón como pide Ntra. Madre!

de un Credo (la “cuenta” que está sola) 
y luego se reza un PadreNuestro, un AveMaría y un Gloria 
por cada grupito de tres cuentas (los siete grupos).

Esta coronilla también suele rezarse con la intención de:

Recitación Diaria en Honor de las Santas Llagas

A cada invocación:

Padre Nuestro  +  Ave María  +  Gloria

+ 1. Por la santa llaga de la mano derecha.

+ 2. Por la santa llaga de la mano izquierda.

+ 3. Por la santa llaga del pie derecho.

+ 4. Por la santa llaga del pie izquierdo.

+ 5. Por la santa llaga del sagrado costado.

+ 6. Por la Efusión del Espíritu Santo.

+ 7. Por el Santo Padre.

Coroinha da Paz --- Os 7 Pai-Nossos, Aves, e Glórias

Essa oração já era uma tradição na vila de Mediugórie. Nos primeiros dias das aparições, a avó de um dos videntes sugeriu-lhes rezar na hora da aparição, pois, se fosse o demônio, fugiria. Assim, quando Nossa Senhora chegava, eles estavam rezando. 

Essas orações já eram rezadas pelos idosos do lugar, em honra das 7 dores de Nossa Senhora. Depois, Ela pediu no início, também, a reza do Credo, sua oração preferida. Vicka diz que, quando começa a rezar o Credo, Nossa Senhora não pára de sorrir e nunca A vê tão feliz como quando durante essa oração. 

Nossa Senhora ensinou que se rezasse os 5 primeiros Pai-Nossos, Aves e Glórias em honra das chagas das mãos, dos pés e do peito de Jesus. O 6º, pelo Papa e o 7º, pedindo o Espírito Santo para nós, para nossas famílias e para o mundo inteiro.


Chapelet pour la Paix 

   La Vierge Marie dans ses apparitions à Medjugorje demande de prier ce chapelet principalement pour les prêtres et la paix dans le monde.
Voici comment le réciter :

 Sur la croix ou la médaille, réciter le Je crois en Dieu

Sur chacun des 7 groupes de 3 grains réciter :

1 Notre Père, 1 Je vous salue Marie et 1 Gloire au Père

 On peut terminer le chapelet par une prière pour la paix :

 Prière pour la Paix de Saint-François d’Assise

Seigneur, fais de moi un instrument de ta paix.

Là où est la haine, que je mette l'amour.
Là où est l'offense, que je mette le pardon.
Là où est la discorde, que je mette l'union.
Là où est l'erreur, que je mette la vérité.
Là où est le doute, que je mette la Foi.
à où est le désespoir, que je mette l'espérance.
Là où sont les ténèbres, que je mette la lumière.
Là où est la tristesse, que je mette la joie.

Ô Seigneur, que je ne m'efforce pas tant
d'être consolé que de consoler,
d'être compris que de comprendre,
d'être aimé que d'aimer.

Car c'est en donnant que l'on reçoit,
c'est en s'oubliant que l'on se trouve,
c'est en pardonnant que l'on obtient le pardon,
c'est en mourant que l'on ressuscité à la vie éternelle.

Prière pour la Paix de Jean-Paul II

Dieu de nos Pères,
Grand et Miséricordieux,
Seigneur de la paix et de la vie,
Père de tous.
Tu as des projets de paix et non d'affliction,
tu condamnes les guerres et tu abats l'orgueil des violents.
Tu as envoyé ton Fils Jésus pour annoncer la paix
à ceux qui sont proches ou loin,
pour réunir les hommes
de chaque race et de chaque origine en une seule famille.
Ecoute le cri unanime de tes fils,
la supplication pleine de tristesse de toute l'humanité :
plus jamais la guerre, aventure sans retour,
plus jamais la guerre, spirale de deuil et de violence ;
non à cette guerre
qui est une menace pour tes créatures
dans le ciel, sur la terre et la mer.
En communion avec Marie, la Mère de Jésus,
nous te supplions encore :
parle au cœur des responsables du destin des peuples,
arrête la logique des représailles et de la vengeance,
suggère par ton Esprit de nouvelles solutions,
des gestes généreux et honorables,
des possibilités de dialogue et de patiente attente,
qui soient plus féconds que les rapides décisions de guerre.
Accorde à notre époque des jours de paix.
Plus jamais la guerre.
