|G3651||ST JOSEPH CHAPLET||
A beautiful chaplet that is a prayerful reflection on the life of St. Joseph. This chaplet is made of amethyst crystal beads and a St. Joseph medal. Instructions on how to pray the chaplet are included.
This chaplet is divided into fifteen groups of four beads consisting of one white bead and three purple beads. The white beads symbolize St. Joseph's purity and the purple beads his saintly piety.
A Mystery of the rosary is considered on each white bead and two Hail Marys are said.
On the purple beads say: "Praised and blessed be Jesus, Mary and Joseph!"
The chaplet is ended with the following prayers:
V. Pray for us, O holy St. Joseph!
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ!
Let us pray: O God, Who has predestined St. Joseph from all eternity for service of Thine Eternal Son and His Blessed Mother, and made him worthy to be the spouse of this Blessed Virgin and the foster father of Thy Son; we bessech Thee, through all the service he has rendered to Jesus and Mary on earth, that Thou wouldst make us worthy of his intercession and grant us to enjoy the happiness of his company in heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
This prayer is a voluntary private devotion and may be used as desired, but would be especially appropriate on the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Husband of Mary (March 19) and the memorial of St. Joseph the Worker (May 1). It would also be appropriate as prayer for the Universal Church, unborn children, fathers, workers, travelers, immigrants, and for a happy death, all of which have St. Joseph as a patron.
