“What is urgent is the evangelization of a world that not only does not know the basic aspects of Christian dogma, but in great part has lost even the memory of the cultural elements of Christianity.” Pope St. John Paul II

        Boston Catholic Journal                   “I am convinced that the crisis in the Church that we are experiencing today is to a large extent due to the disintegration of the liturgy.” Pope Benedict XVI

The Chaplet on other Languages:


In Italiano

Corona di Sant. Colette

enedetta sia l'ora

in cui il nostro Signore Gesu' Cristo,

Dio e uomo e' nato.

Benedetto sia lo Spirito Santo

dal quale Gesu' e' stato concepito.

Benedetta sia la Vergine Maria

dalla quale il Verbo Incarnato e' nato.

Che il Signore ascolti le nostre preghiere

attraverso l'intercessione

della gloriosa Vergine Maria

in virtu' dell'ora piu' sacra

in cui il Verbo Incarnato si e' fatto uomo,

che tutte le nostre petizioni siano esaudite

per la Sua gloria e per la nostra salvezza.

O buon Gesu'!

O Gesu' nostro Redentore,

non abbandonarci come meritiamo per i nostri peccati

ma ascolta la nostra umile preghiera

attraverso l'intercessione

della Beatissima Vergine Maria

e per gloria del tuo santo nome.


Come piace a DIo

Come Dio vuole (dieci volte)

Lodiamo il Padre nella sua misericordia

e il Figlio nella sua passione

e lo Spirito Santo

sorgente di pace, di dolcezza e di amore.

Amen, amen per sempre!


Io sono la Via.

Io sono la Verita'.

Io sono la Vita.

Io sono la Risurrezione.

Io sono il Buon Pastore.

Io sono la salvezza dell'umanita'.

Io sono La Luce del mondo.

Io sono l'ALfa e l'Omega.

Io sono l'Inizio e la Fine.

Io Sono.

 Scio opera tua ... quia modicum habes virtutem, et servasti verbum Meum, nec non negasti Nomen Meum 
I know your works ... that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My word, and have not denied My Name. (Apocalypse 3.8)
