French, Infant of Prague Chaplet

Sorry, this item has sold.

This French, Infant of Prague chaplet has an aluminum Infant of Prague medal with "France" stamped on the front. Please use the zoom function to view this very small detail. The medal, in particular, has wear and soiling owing to age. I've not cleaned it but have left this up to the discretion of the new owner. The beads of an indeterminate material.

The chaplet measures 7.5" in length. The medal is ⅝" across. The opening is very small-- approximately 2.5" across when spread to form a circle. It is actually not meant to be worn, but if one were to decide to wear it, it will have to fit over one's hand as well as on their wrist. My hand is 8" across from the knuckle of my index finger to the knuckle of my pinky finger, and I can barely fit the chaplet over my hand; I had to roll it gently onto my wrist. My wrist is 6" circumference, and the chaplet easily fits on it with room.

Thank you to https://aleteia.org/2018/12/29/how-to-pray-the-chaplet-of-the-infant-jesus/ for the following information about this rare, special chaplet:

Among the many devotions to the Child Jesus, the Chaplet of the Infant Jesus is one that is rarely seen. Smaller than the Rosary, the Chaplet of the Infant Jesus has only 15 beads.

The Chaplet was introduced by Venerable Marguerite of the Holy-Sacrament, a French Carmelite nun who lived in the 17th century. It is believed that Marguerite had a vision of Jesus and he gave her this chaplet, promising special graces to those who recited it in faith.

Marguerite had a special devotion to the Infant Jesus throughout her life and encouraged all people to develop a similar devotion. She once said, “Consider the Child Jesus in the Crib, small and helpless, who is giving himself entirely to you …The Holy Infant Jesus has more care of our souls and our needs than we would have ourselves.”

Here’s how to pray the special chaplet.

Begin with the following prayer

Divine Infant Jesus,I adore Thy Crossand I accept all the crossThou wilt be pleased to send me.Adorable Trinity,I offer Theefor the glory of Thy Holy Name of God,all the adorations of the Sacred Heartof the Holy Infant Jesus.
Then recite the “Our Father” 3 times in honor of the Holy Family

Before each “Our Father” say, “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.”

Recite 12 “Hail Marys” while reflecting on the childhood of the Infant Jesus

Similarly, before each “Hail Mary” say, “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.”

At the end of the chaplet pray, “Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us.”

Thank you for looking.
