St Maria Goretti (1902 AD); St Goar (649 AD); St Godelieva (1070 AD)



Rosary of the Good Shepherd


„Sign of the Cross:

"In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen."

Start with the „Apostles' Creed‟ and „Our Father‟,


“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; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall 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.”


“Our Father”:

“Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be 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 debts,  as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.”


Then say:

“I am the Good Shepherd and the Good Shepherd gives His life for His flock;”


In each decade you say:

“O Good Shepherd”


And respond:

“Be our safeguard and our refuge”.


At the ends of each decade say:

I am the Good Shepherd …”


say one „Our Father‟

and begin again as in the beginning.


Say Psalm 23 at the end of the Chaplet.


Psalm 22 (23) A Psalm of David


The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil, for you are with me;

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely your goodness and love shall follow me all the days of my life,

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
