CHAPLET OF THE HOLY INFANCY

This form of devotions due to the zeal of the venerable St. Margaret of the Blessed Sacrament, a Carmelite religious who died a saintly death at the age of twenty nine at Beaune, France in May 1648.

Inspired from on high she made a chaplet consisting of 15 beads and medal portraying an image of the Infant Jesus. The chaplet requires the recitation of 3 Our Fathers in honor of the Holy Family and 12 Hail Mary's in memory of the twelve years of the childhood of Jesus.

With your heart filled with love and gratitude for all the Infant Jesus has accomplished for your salvation, devoutly recite His holy chaplet as follows. While meditating on the goodness of the Infant Jesus, whose image is portrayed on the medal, say:

"Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Your Cross, and I accept all the crosses You will be pleased to send me. Adorable Trinity, I offer You, for the glory of the Holy Name of God, all the adorations of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus."

On each of the three following beads, recite this invocation: "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." Follow each aspiration with an Our Father in honor of the Holy Family.

On each of the twelve beads, recite this invocation: "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." Follow each aspiration with a Hail Mary in honor of the 12 years of Our Lord's sacred infancy.

To complete the chaplet, recite the Glory be to the Father and this invocation: "Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us."

The infant Jesus made known to His faithful servant how pleasing this holy practice was to Him and revealed to her that He would grant special favors, especially the grace of purity and innocence to those who recite the chaplet in honor of the mysteries of His Holy Infancy.


Prayers of the Chaplet:

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace! the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
