New Website for Ven. Sr. Mary Martha Chambon

The devotion to Our Lord’s Holy Wounds received new impetus under the guise of a humble lay Sister of the Visitation, Sister Mary Martha Chambon, of the Visitation Monastery, then of Chambery, France.

Over a century later, this devotion continues to draw the faithful. Thus a new organization was established recently in the Visitation Monastery of Marclaz, France, with the title, Sister Mary Martha Chambon and Friends.

This association has developed a new website on the Visitation Sister and the current efforts for her beatification as well as other spiritual areas of interest.

You can access the website here:

    I awoke this morning and while praying I found the Rosary of the Holy Wounds on a Catholic App on my Ipad. Until today I didn’t know this beautiful devotion existed.
    What a beautiful prayer. I find myself totally compelled to making this devotion known and prayed. I knew nothing of Venerable Marie Martha Chambon this morning and now I am reading all that I can find. The Spirit works in wonderful ways.

    I’m so happy to see devotion to the Holy Wounds and Sr. Mary Marthe Chambon gain more popularity. I always felt this devotion was overlooked while the Divine Mercy devotion got most of the attention. However, both devotions are very powerful. Interestingly enough, the Chaplet of the Holy Wounds was originally called Chaplet of Mercy by Our Lord to Sr. Chambon. I have a copy of her biography and I would like to someday very soon put it on the web.

    I’d like to clarify something I saw on the website. The promises to St. Gertrude about the holy wounds are specific to the following prayers. I say these prayers daily every morning:

    Prayers of St. Gertrude and St. Mechtilde to the Holy Wounds

    Glory be to Thee, most gracious, most sweetest, most benign, sovereign, transcending, effulgent and ever peaceful Trinity, for the roseate Wounds of Jesus Christ, my chosen and only love. (5 times)

    Oblation Prayer (To be said after each 5 repetitions)

    O Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, accept this prayer, with that surpassing love, with which Thou didst endure all the Wounds of Thy most Holy body. Have mercy on me, and on all sinners, and on all the faithful, living and departed. Grant them grace and mercy, remission of sins, and everlasting life. Amen.

    Divine Promise:
    When St. Gertrude had recited this prayer 5,466 times, in honor of all the Wounds of our Lord Jesus, He appeared to her in vision, having on each Wound a rose flashing with a golden splendor, and greeted her tenderly, saying: “Behold, I will appear to thee, in this refulgent form at the hour of thy death, and I will cover all thy sins, and adorn thee with a glory, like that with which thou has adorned my Wounds by thy salutations; and all who use this or any similar devotion shall receive the like favor.” In order to make up this number, and become a partaker of this promise of Christ, say the following prayer five times a day for three years, adding the oblation, which our Lord directed to St. Mechtilde to repeat after each division of five.
