CHAPLET OF ST. PHILOMENA

The St. Philomena chaplet, consisting of the medal of the St. Philomena and sixteen beads. Three white beads in honor of the three Divine Persons of the Blessed Trinity and thirteen red beads commemorating the thirteen years St. Philomena lived on this earth.

The chaplet is said by starting on the medal of St. Philomena and reciting the Apostles' Creed and requesting the grace of faith.

On each of the three white beads say the Our Father in honor of the three Divine Persons of the Blessed Trinity as thanksgiving for all favors obtained through her intercession.

On each of the thirteen red beads, the number of years St. Philomena spent on earth, recite the following prayer:

Hail, O holy St. Philomena, whom I acknowledge, after Mary, as my advocate with the Divine Spouse, intercede for me now and at the hour of my death.

St, Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Amen.

To conclude the chaplet, offer this prayer:

Hail, O illustrious St. Philomena, who shed so courageously your blood for Christ! I bless the Lord for all the graces He has bestowed upon thee during thy life, and especially at thy death.

I praise and glorify Him for the honor and power with which He has crowned thee, and I beg thee to obtain for me from God the graces I ask through thy intercession. Amen. (mention your request)


Prayers of the Chaplet:

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

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.
