How to Pray the Chaplet of Saint Philomena
Patron Saint of children, hopeless, lost
and impossible causes, orphans, poor people and priests.
Wards against bodily ills, infertility and sickness.
This chaplet consists of a St. Philomena Medal, 3 white beads for the Three
Divine Persons of the Holy Trinity and 13 red beads, one for each year of her
life on Earth.
On the medal, pray
the Apostle's Creed, to ask for the grace of faith.
On each of the white beads, pray
1 Our Father
in honor of the three Divine Persons of the Blessed Trinity in
thanksgiving for all favors obtained through her intercession.
On each of the 13 red beads, say the following prayer
Hail, O holy St. Philomena, whom I acknowledge,
after Mary, as my advocate with the Divine Spouse, intercede for me now
and at the hour of my death. St. Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus
and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Amen.
In conclusion, say
Hail, O illustrious Saint Philomena, who shed so
courageously your blood for Christ! I bless the Lord for all the graces
He has bestowed upon thee during thy life, and especially at thy death.
I praise and glorify Him for the honor and power with which He has
crowned thee, and I beg thee to obtain for me from God the graces I ask
through thy intercession.
