How to Pray this chaplet:

The medals for this chaplet are available in the Chaplets section #2214
Manner of Reciting:

a) On the Medal pray "The ANIMA CHRISTI"

b) On the first bead - "O Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Blood, Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the sorrows of our Blessed Lady and St. Joseph in reparation for my sins, in suffrage for the holy souls in Purgatory, for the wants of our Holy Church, and for the conversion of sinners."

c) On the next three beads - "My God, I believe in Thee."
"My God, I hope in Thee."
"My God, I love Thee with my whole heart, and for Thy sake I love my neighbour as myself."

d) Then on the medal or single bead of each decade - "Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto thine. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

e) On the beads of each set - "Sweet Heart of Jesus, I implore, make me love Thee more and more!" At the end of each decade - "Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation!"

f) In conclusion say (returning down the first set of 3 beads) -
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I give you my heart and soul."
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, assist me in my last agony."
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, may I breathe forth my soul in peace with you."

g) Optional - conclude on the large medal again with the optional prayer.

Anima Christi:
Optional Prayer for the Help of The Sacred Heart of Jesus:

Soul of Christ, be my sanctification.
Body of Christ, be my salvation.
Blood of Christ, fill all my veins.
Water from the side of Christ,
wash out my stains.
Passion of Christ, my comfort be.
O good Jesus, listen to me.
In Thy wounds I fain would hide,
Ne'er to be parted from Thy side.
Guard me should the foe assail me.
Call me when my life shall fail me;
Bid me come to Thee above,
with Thy saints to sing Thy love.
World without end. Amen.

Take away, O my Jesus, the blindness of my heart that I may know Thee;

take away the hardness of my heart that I may fear Thee;

take away the coldness of my heart that I may love Thee;

take away the weakness of my heart that I may resist everything that is contrary to Thy will;

take away its heavy, earthly sluggishness and selfishness that I may be capable of heroic sacrifice for Thy glory, and for the souls whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy own most Precious Blood. Amen.

NOTE: The prayers included here can be said on either bead version of the Sacred Heart chaplet.
