What are Chaplets?
chaplet is a special type of rosary in honor of the Trinity, of Jesus
Christ, his Mother, of angels and of saints.
Its purpose is to initiate or to revive a special devotion.
Many chaplets can be recited with the ordinary rosary beads, others
have their own number of beads
and special format. A chaplet
can be used as a novena or to highlight special days and special seasons.
From the Little Chaplet of the Holy Ghost on Sundays to the Chaplet
of Saint Raphael before traveling, the existing chaplets and the reasons
for new ones constitute a sheer endless list.
