The Chaplet of St Joseph
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 contemplated 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 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 The, 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.
