The Chaplet of 
St. Joan of Arc

(Ste. Jeanne d'Arc)

The chaplet may be used as a novena or prayed at any time for any necessity throughout the year. A total number of nineteen beads on this chaplet commemorates each year of Joan's life. 

Method of Prayer:

On the medal, make the sign of the Cross, recite 
"Incline unto my aid, Oh God! Oh Lord, make haste to help me! Amen." 
Follow this with a "Glory Be".

On the pendant bead, say the following prayer:
"Saint Joan of Arc, immolated as a victim of the burning stake, pray that I may also become a victim by the faithful practice of all my duties as they pertain to me during my whole life.  With you, I only wish to find my delight in practicing humility, charity, and penance, and all the virtues necessary to gain entrance into Heaven. Saint Joan of Arc, pray for us!"

On the first meditation (single) bead, pray an "Our Father", and then recite,
"Pray for us, Saint Joan of Arc, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

On the first group of five beads, pray a "Hail Mary" for each bead.

On the next meditation bead, pray an "Our Father", and then recite, 
"Pray for us, Saint Joan of Arc, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

On the second group of five beads, pray a "Hail Mary" for each bead.

On the next meditation bead, Pray an "Our Father", and then recite, 
"Pray for us, Saint Joan of Arc, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

On the third group of five beads, pray a "Hail Mary" for each bead.

Conclude the chaplet on the medal, by reciting the following prayer: 
"Saint Joan of Arc, be with me in all my struggles. Like the strong men of Israel, experienced in warfare, who constantly carry the sword at their side, to guard against unforeseen attacks during the night, may I ever be prepared for the combat. 
Together with the protection of the angels and saints grant me also your own; inspire my endeavors; be my help and my light to guide me to Jesus, our Chief, and when my earthly mission is accomplished, may I expire like you, repeating with love, 
‘Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!' - Saint Joan of Arc, pray for us!"
