The Memorare chaplet asks for prayers and intercession from the Blessed Virgin Mary. Specifically for seven special intentions: The Church, Priests, The End of Abortion, The Souls in Purgatory, World Peace, Our Blessed Mother’s Intentions, and Our Own Intentions.

How to Pray the Memorare Chaplet

Begin with the Apostles Creed:

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, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated 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. Amen.
