The Rosary of Our Lady's Tears...

The Rosary of Our Lady's Tears is a beautiful chaplet.  Its' origin and efficacy are explained here.

How the Rosary is said:

The chaplet is prayed with regular Rosary beads.  If you do not have the special chaplet beads, you pray seven decades.

Instead of the Creed pray:

Crucified Jesus! We fall at Your feet and offer You the tears of her who with deep compassionate love accompanied You on Your sorrowful Way of the Cross. Grant, O Good Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the tears of Your most holy Mother teach us, so that we may fulfill Your holy will on earth, that we may be worthy to praise and exalt You in Heaven for all eternity.

Instead of the Our Father pray:

V. O Jesus, look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth

R. And loves You most ardently in Heaven.

Instead of the Hail Mary pray:

V. O Jesus, hear our prayers

R. For the sake of Your most holy Mother's tears.

At the end repeat three times on the small beads the invocations that replace the Our Father.

Conclude with this prayer:

O Mary, Mother of love, sorrow and mercy, we beg you to unite your prayers with ours so that Jesus, your Divine Son, to Whom we turn may hear our petitions in the name of your maternal tears and may give us in addition to the favors we ask, the crown of everlasting life. Amen.
