This chaplet consists of 24 beads, commemorating the 24 years of Saint Therese’s life, and one additional bead. On the one bead the following ejaculation is said: “Saint Therese of the Infant Jesus, Patroness of Missions, pray for us.” On the other 24 beads is said the Glory be to honor the Holy Trinity in thanksgiving for having given us the Little Saint who lived in this world but 24 years.
The use of this chaplet is encouraged by the Carmelite Fathers.
(For private recitation upon the Rosary beads)
Our Father . . . Hail Mary . . . Creed
On the large beads:
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Thy Most Beloved Son and our Lord Jesus Christ in atonement for our sins and the sins of the whole world.
On the small beads:
Through the sorrowful passion of Jesus show mercy unto us and to all the world, (ten times) (The same is repeated for every decade of the Rosary and is to be joined with meditation on the mystery of each individual decade.) In conclusion add: Holy God, Holy Omnipotent, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us. (3 times)
