The Mysteries of the Rosary are commemorated on each of the large beads.
On each of the 50 small beads, say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, one Glory Be to the Father, and the ejaculation: ‘Hail Mary Most Pure, conceived without original sin.’
As in the traditional Rosary, the Creed is said on the Crucifix.
Notes and Commentaries
The Little Office of the Holy Ghost was composed in 1924 by Rev. Father Felix of Jesus of the Missionaries of the Holy Ghost. It has the required ecclesiastical permission.
Comment: We know that the “Works of the Cross” (the principal ones, among others, for seculars) are works of the Missionaries of the Holy Ghost and Sisters of the Cross, a Mexican foundation requested by Our Lord of the servant of God, Concepción Cabrera de Armida, of holy memory. The Works of the Cross have as their divine object the revival of the love of the Cross specifically, since it is only through the Cross that Heaven is attained.
Now, the combining of this Office with the Holy Rosary, said with arms extended in the form of a cross, has also been dictated by God Our Lord to María Concepción Zúñiga recently. He told her that “this will be a Penitential Rosary that will please the Heavenly Father a great deal,” because He, Christ, would be the One Who would stand before the faithful who recite it and offer it in remission for all the sins of the world – their own and those of others.
Among the members of a single family (as we human beings are), there must be solidarity. Some must compensate for others. And in the measure that we see God offended, in that measure we must offer penance, counteracting the works of the disordered world with works of virtue, of charity, and of atonement, for the purpose of attaining forgiveness for everyone.
