St. Joseph Chaplet

This chaplet has 15 groups of 4 beads (one large, often white, and three small, usually purple). On the large, or white bead, a mystery of the rosary is meditated upon, and two Hail Marys are prayed. On the smaller or purple beads recite the following:

Praised and blessed be Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

End on the medal of Saint Joseph:

Pray for us O holy Saint Joseph, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ!

O God, Who has predestined Saint Joseph from all eternity for the service of your eternal Son and His Blessed Mother, and made him worthy to be the spouse of this Blessed Virgin and the foster father of your Son: We beseech you, through all the services he has rendered to Jesus and Mary on earth, that You would make us worthy of his intercession and grant us to enjoy the happiness of his company in heaven. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
