On each of the ten beads:
V. Through the intercession of St Genesius and the blood of the Holy Martyrs,
R. strengthen us with your grace, O Lord, and save us by the Blood of the Lamb.

On the medal:
All: Holy St Genesius, martyr for Christ, by the grace of the Holy Spirit through your acting you came to discover the truth of the Christian faith. In your first profession of that faith you were baptized through the shedding of your blood, offering your life for the praise and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for those who dedicate their lives to the theatrical and cinematic arts. Like you may they find the presence of the Lord in their work and generously open their hearts to his teaching, living it in the midst of the challenges and demands of their calling.
In this prayer, I remember most especially …., commending him/her /them to your care.
Let us pray,
Eternal Father, in your love you call all men and women to come to know you and to share in your divine life. Through the intercession of your martyr, Genesius, who responded so generously to the grace of conversion, grant that the same grace may be given to those who as yet do not know you, and may be renewed in those who do. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
