THE INFANT JESUS CHAPLET
Directed by heavenly guidance, Venerable Sister Marguerite of the BI. Sacrament (1619-1648), a Carmelite nun, fashioned the Infant Jesus Chaplet. Because its recitation pleases Him so very much, Jesus promised Ven. Sister Marguerite that the faithful who recite it in memory of His Birth, His Flight into Egypt, and His Hidden Life at Nazareth, will not only be granted the special graces of purity of heart and innocence, but in addition will be unfailingly assisted by His Divine Help in all their spiritual and temporal wants. Cures and miracles without number were wrought through devotion to the Divine Child.
Moreover, to encourage the use of this Holy Chaplet, P. Pius IX granted a 100 days indulgence for each recitation, also applicable to the Poor Souls (Aug. 9, 1855).
How to pray the Infant Jesus Chaplet
While meditating on the goodness of the Infant Jesus whose Image is portrayed on the medal, say:
“Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Thy Cross and I accept all the crosses Thou will be pleased to send me. Adorable Trinity, I offer Thee for the glory of the Holy Name of God, all the adoration of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus.”
Next devoutly recite the Our Father three times in honour of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
Before each Our Father says the aspiration “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.”
In memory of the twelve years of Jesus and His Sacred Infancy, recite twelve Aves’s (Hail Marys), and before each one the same aspiration is said: “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.”
In conclusion, the invocation is said, “Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us.”
