The Three Crowns

Yesterday, the following homily by Fr. Matthias gave me the impression that the Franciscan Crown had been “updated.” However, it seems that the Franciscans of the Immaculate have modified the Franciscan Crown and combined it with the Chaplet of Seven Sorrows introduced by the Servites while “creating” seven corresponding Glories. While the indulgences for the Franciscan Crown were abrogated by Pope Paul VI, a plenary indulgence has been granted for piously reciting the Three Crowns in a church or oratory under the care of the Franciscans of the Immaculate.

The following book explains this Rosary and can be ordered from the Academy of the Immaculate.
