Catholic Prayer: Chaplet of St. Joseph

Description:

This chaplet is divided into fifteen groups of four beads consisting of one white and three purple beads. The white bead symbolizes 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.

Prayer:

On the purple beads say:

Praised and blessed be Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!

The chaplet is ended with the following prayer:

V. Pray for us, O holy St. Joseph! R. That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ!

Let us pray

O, God, Who had predestined St. Joseph for all eternity for the service of Thine Eternal Son and His Blessed Mother, and made him worthy to be the spouse of the Blessed Virgin and the foster father of Thy Son: we beseech Thee, through all the services 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
