Way of the Cross chaplet

Q. Recently on a trip to Rome I purchased a rosary only to find out that it was something called a Stations of the Cross rosary. Can you enlighten me on this?

— R.W., Bountiful, Utah

A. Here’s a reply from OSV columnist Msgr. M. Francis Mannion:

This rosarylike aid to prayer, properly called a chaplet, is meant to assist people who are not physically able to walk the Way of the Cross to identify with Christ’s sufferings and death. The chaplet consists of 15 groups of three beads each, between which medals are representing the 14 Stations of the Cross. On the three beads between each station, one prays the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
