Chaplet Of The Infant Jesus

       This devotion owes its origin to the zeal of the Venerable Sister Marguerite of the Blessed Sacrament, a Carmelite religious, whom died in the odor of sanctity at Beaune, France, May 26, 1648, aged 27 years.

       The Divine Infant revealed to His faithful servant how pleasing to Him is this holy practice. He promised her that He would grant special graces, above all purity of heart and innocence, to all who carried the chaplet on their person and recited it in honor of the mysteries of His Holy Infancy. As a sign of His approval, He showed her these chaplets shining with supernatural light.


On the medal say the following


       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 next three beads say


       And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.


       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.


On each of the next twelve beads say


       And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.


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


At end of chaplet say


       Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us!
