The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel honours St. Michael and the nine Angelic Choirs and was given to Antónia d’Astónaco, a Portuguese Carmelite, by St. Michael with the powerful promises. It and was approved and indulgenced by Pope St. Pius IX in 1851.
This powerful devotion to St. Joseph is to be prayed for 30 days. St. Teresa of Avila vouched for its efficaciousness, writing “If you really want to believe in it, prove it to yourself by reciting the Novena and you will be finally convinced.”
This novena to the Infant of Prague consists of opening prayers, 9 separate daily reflections, and concludes with the Christ the King Prayer. One may like to add Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be each day. Intentions can be stated at the start of novena or re-stated daily.
