Little Rosary of the Divine Will

The Little Rosary of the Divine Will was composed by Saint Hannibal di Francia, a confessor of Servant of God Louisa Piccarretta, a lay Dominican. Louisa's cause for beatification is currently being examined by the Vatican.

This prayer was written by Saint Hannibal late in his life and he prayed it several times a day during his final illness.

Begin with the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be (on the first large bead above the crucifix). Continue praying the rosary as follows:

On each of the smaller Hail Mary beads pray: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

On each of the larger Our Father beads pray the Glory Be.

Conclude the Little Rosary of the Divine Will with this prayer:

"Lord Jesus, we praise you, we love you, we bless you, and we thank you who are God with the Father and the Holy Spirit in your Holy and Eternal Divine Will. Amen."
