Five Mysteries of the Sacred Heart Chaplet

You may meditate on these mysteries, or others, while praying the chaplet. Because the decades are short, it is not recommended that you fix one mystery per decade. Instead, dwell on a mystery for as long as it is helpful, move on to a different mystery if you feel drawn to.

i. The Entry into Jerusalem in which our Savior, meek and humble of heart and riding on a donkey, entered triumphantly into the City of David and his people sang Hosanna.

ii. The Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane in which Christ suffered affliction out of love for sinful and disobedient humanity and asked his disciples to remain, pray and keep vigil with him.

iii. The Road to Emmaus in which Christ accompanied his disciples and interpreted the scriptures for them. Their hearts burned within them, and he revealed himself in the breaking of the bread.

iv. The Blessed Sacrament, which is given to humanity through the Mystery of the Altar, reposed in the tabernacle, and exposed for Eucharistic Adoration, within which God is really, truly and substantially present.

v. The Image of the Sacred Heart, which represents Christ’s Sacred Humanity, the interior life of his soul, and his affection of merciful love for humanity.
