CHRISTMAS NOVENA TEXTS
CHAPLET OF THE HOLY INFANT JESUS
The chaplet devotion to the Infant Jesus was begun by a Carmelite Saint, Ven. Marguerite of the Blessed Sacrament. She had great devotion to the Infant Jesus. Inspired by the Spirit of Jesus, she composed this chaplet of fifteen red beads and a medal honoring the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague.
On each of the three beads following the medal, an Our Father is said to honor the Holy Family. Recite the Hail Mary on each of the twelve beads that follow, in memory of the twelve years of Jesus' youth.
This chaplet is simple, beautiful and powerful. Thousands of people give testimony of the Blessings received from the Infant Jesus through this chaplet devotion.
Pray it daily. Carry it always. Share it with your children as they need the guidance of the Divine Child:
Begin on the medal with the following invocation:
Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Your Cross, and I accept all the crosses You will be pleased to send me. Adorable Trinity, I offer You for the glory of the Holy Name of God all the adorations of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus.
Take hold of each of the first three beads, one by one, and:
Say, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us"
Pray the Our Father.
Move on to each of the 12 Beads of the chaplet proper and :
Say, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us."
Pray the Hail Mary.
Conclude by saying, at the end of the chaplet:
Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us!
