A chaplet is another way to use a rosary. Rather than

Mary for personal intentions and venerating her,
Reciting Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Crucifix - say the Hail, Holy Queen.
Large Beads - say: Mary can help us, Mary will
help us, Mary wants to help us, Mary must help us.
Small Beads - say: Mother of Perpetual Help,
pray for us.
End - say the Memorare to Mary.
Remember, O gracious
Virgin Mary, that never was
it known that anyone who
fled to thy protection, implored thy
help or sought thy intercession was
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly to thee,
O Virgin of Virgins and
my Mother; to thee I
come, before thee I kneel,
sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but
in thy mercy, hear and answer me.

While reciting the prayers to Our Mother of Perpetual
Help, many Roman Catholics wear the icon in the form
of Our Lady of Perpetual Help medals. The medal is a
visual reminder of all the main themes of the Catholic
faith. An Our Lady of Perpetual Help pendant reveals
the fear in the face
of Jesus as a boy who will face crucifixion, the
sadness and solemnity of the Virgin Mary, and the Archangels,
Michael and Gabriel
who carry symbols of the crucifixion in their hands.
