Peace Chaplet

History:
The Peace Chaplet is a shortened rosary that is easy to pray.  Whenever you have a few minutes, at a red light, on a coffee break, or anytime you watch the news.  To recite the peace chaplet prayer begin by praying the Creed on the bead (or medal) on the top, and then pray an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be on each of the 3 beads respectively in the 7 sections.  While praying meditate on the issues of world peace, pray for our governmental leadership, pray for understanding, pray for family and friends involved in the military conflicts around the world or any other matters that touch your heart related to world peace.
It is the 'Worker's Rosary' in that the Blessed Mother will never refuse to hear if prayed from the heart. Seven is the number of perfection in the Bible which makes the Peace Chaplet a perfect shorter prayer.
Research indicates that this chaplet is over 100 years old and has a popular following in Croatia.

Medals/Beads:
The Peace Chaplet contains 21 beads, arranged in seven groups of three beads, and pendant (which may be a bead, medal, or crucifix).
