Beautiful read crystal bead chaplet to the Infant of Prague. Made in South Africa.
Chaplet of the Holy Infant Jesus
"The More You Honor Me The More I Will Bless You"
This chaplet consists of a medal of the Infant Jesus [of Prague], three beads in honor of the Holy Family, and twelve beads in memory of the twelve years of the Sacred Infancy of our Divine Savior.
On the medal the following invocation is said: "Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Thy Cross and I accept all the cross Thou wilt be pleased to send me. Adorable Trinity, I offer Thee for the glory of Thy Holy Name of God, all the adorations of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus."
On the first three beads: Pray the Our Father three times in honor of the Holy Family, preceded by the aspiration:"And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us."
On the twelve beads: Pray twelve Hail Mary twelve times in honor of the twelve years of Our Lord's Childhood, preceded by the aspiration:"And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us."
On completing the chaplet say: "Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us."
This devotion owes its origin to the zeal of Sister Marguerite, a Carmelite religious, who died in France in 1648. She was distinguished for her devotion to the Holy Child Jesus.
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 a supernatural light.
