Default What is a chaplet?

Can someone simply explain a chaplet to me? Does it involve beads like a rosary?

Yes chaplets can involve beads. They take less time than a rosary

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is one of the most powerful and very easy to learn

A chaplet is a string of a certain number of beads. Actually a rosary is a type of chaplet. Various saints have their own "version" of the Rosary. For example a Chaplet of St. Therese has 24 beads to represent the 24 years of her life. They are sacramentals, like the Rosary, that show devotion to a particular saint, and/or aspect of Jesus or Mary, etc.

Chaplets can be longer than the Rosary.

Default Re: What is a chaplet?

Wow, cool, I never knew there were so many. I was wondering how all these came to be? I know certain devotions were revealed to a saint by Mary or Jesus. Are any of these created. Can we create our own "chaplet" or groups/orders of prayers for our private devotions? Are their "approved" chaplets? This is something that I had wondered a while back when I first started falling in love with the Catholic church, and really wanted to learn to use prayer beads, but haven't thought about in a while.

Looks like I'll be researching different chaplets tonight. Thanks for the question.

Yes, straight from the wiki:

A Chaplet is a form of Roman Catholic prayer which use prayer beads, but is not necessarily related to the Rosary.
I have one to Saint Jude.

Here's a website with a lot of different chaplets. And has been mentioned, some are longer than a regular rosary!
