It is broken into three parts, the first part in honour of Our Lord, the second part in honour of Our Lady and the third, in honour of St Anne. Each part consists of an Our Father and five Hail Mary's. After each Hail Mary you add, "Jesus, Mary and St Anne, please grant the favour I ask" I often like to be a bit more personal, stating exactly what intention I am petitioning for.
Below is a chaplet I made yesterday, you will see the three parts of the chaplet, at the beginning of the chaplet is a medal of St Anne, this one I bought is a bronze vintage reproduction, just so delicate and exquisite!
I have used Rose Swarovski Crystals 10mm for the Our Father's, by each Our Father is two 4mm Vintage Rose Swarovski Biscone Crystals to give greater highlight to the deep pink crystal. Each Hail Mary consists of the beautiful Ruby Crazy Lace Agate gemstone 6mm, these are just so feminine and sweet.
Saint Anne, here I am again. You may be tired of listeningto my prayer so often repeated. But, you are the Saint in whom I have so much trust! You are a grandmother extruding your love! You were given us by Jesus to console us as we groan in pain. St Anne, have pity on me, relieve me of my misery, bring me some consolation. May I get well again. Oh! please, take pity on me, your child.
I would never have believed sickness could affect me so mercilessly. I would never have imagined I would suffer so much and for so long. I always relied on good health to do so many useful things. And now I feel miserable in my sickness and I am disheartened. You remain, beloved Saint Anne, my one hope. I know how close you are to Jesus, your Grandson.
Will I every have recourse to you without being helped?
In spite of my sufferings which exhaust me day and night, I want to intercede on behalf of all sick people. My prayer must be charitable. There are so many people who moan on their hospital bed, or locked up in their home as in a prison. Who will listen to them as they whimper, who will take a lenient view of their infirmities and wounds, who will smile to them, who will pacify them, if not you, dearest Saint Anne? Give a helping hand, come to their rescue.
Saint Anne, to make my illness profitable, I present my discomfort to Jesus suffering on the cross. I unite my distress to the distress of Mary your daughter, standing at the foot of the cross. I offer my torment and my affliction to my Lord as I look at you, Saint Anne, my heavenly grandmother. Promptly come to my assistance and give new life to all suffering people.
Heal me if this is God's will, give me peace and lasting joy.
