The Chaplet of St. Michael is a wonderful way to honor this great Archangel along with the other nine Choirs of Angels.

Smile Re: what is the chaplet of st michael?

Chaplets are prayer rules. Actually the rosary is a chaplet, the meditations which accompany the rosary give it special qualities other chaplets might not have (although you may add meditations to any chaplet).

You can create your own chaplet.

In the world a chaplet is most often a ring of jewels or flowers, or can be a ring of some other decorative material. (Commonly they are intended to be atop something, like on one's head or at the top of a supporting column.) In the Faith then, a chaplet can be thought of as a ring of prayer, a nice analogy.

Chaplets are aften (or usually) named after some sainted person, but there is no guarantee that the person it is named for actually used the prayer rule themselves, the connection could be legendary or just another example of pious fiction. Sometimes the composer of the chaplet will name it after a favorite or appropriate saint as a dedication.

I do not know what the composition of the Chaplet of St Michael includes, I don't recall having heard of it. My favorite chaplet is that of St Patrick, not because of some supposed connection to that historic person but because of the prayers included.

EWTN is now broadcasting Mother Angelica praying this most powerful prayer at 7am EST. I was transfixed when I first saw/prayed it. Check it out: .

Someone gave me one of these. It is a beautiful prayer to the angels. Great for times when you feel the need to ask for spiritual protection--(or protection of any kind....I live alone & find it a great comfort).

I just came across the one I made this morning before Mass. It may have been a 'nudge' to get me started praying it. Especially after coming across this thread.

Devotion to St. Michael has a long history. The pre-Vatican II "Tridentine Latin Mass" was concluded with a prayer to this Archangel. "St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against...the devil..."
Some of the New Agers even have prayers to St. Michael the Archangel.
