Holy Infant of Prague Chaplet
Infant of Prague end medal + 3 beads on the drop + center medal + twelve beads on the circle above the center.
The Holy Infant of Prague chaplet originated with a Carmelite nun, Venerable Sister Marguerite of the Blessed Sacrament, c.1630. Venerable Marguerite reportedly had visions of the Child Jesus from a young age, and this chaplet was given to her in a revelation from Jesus.
The traditional bead color for this chaplet is red, but antique chaplets in every variety of color abound.
