The Chaplet of St. Joseph

Handmade wire wrapped St. Joseph Chaplet in amethyst and rock crystal.

Configuration

Drop portion:

St. Joseph end medal + 1 purple bead + 1 white bead +

3 purple beads + 1 white bead + (optional) center medal

 

Circle portion:

14 sets of 3 purple beads, separated by 1 white bead each, for a total of 13 additional white beads.

 

The configuration of the St. Joseph chaplet is based upon the original 15 mysteries of the rosary (Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious). The recently added Luminous Mysteries are not included.

 

The traditional colors of this chaplet are purple (representing St. Joseph's piety and majestic position in heaven), and white for His purity.

 

How to pray the Chaplet of St. Joseph

On the end medal, make the sign of the cross.

 

On the first purple bead above the end medal, pray 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 Spirit,

And born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate;

Was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell.

On the third day, He rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven,

And is seated at the right hand of the Father.

From there, He will come to judge

The living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

The holy Catholic church,

The communion of Saints,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the dead,

And life everlasting.  Amen.

If we have died with him, we will also live with him. If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us. If we are faithless, he remains faithful--for he cannot deny himself.
