interesting. and thanks for the list, Clare, I didn’t see that one before but others like it.
I was mainly wondering about the variations, such as for St. Philomena, where it says on the link above for the first line:
Hail, O holy St. Philomena, whom I acknowledge, after Mary, as my advocate with the Divine Spouse, intercede for me now and at the hour of my death.
On the website of her shrine in Italy, it has:
*Hail, O holy Saint Philomena, my dear patroness.
As my advocate with thy Divine Spouse,
intercede for me now and at the hour of my death.*
I just figured I’d go with the one that is from her main shrine. This is an example of some of the variants of the chaplet prayers I’m finding.
I know it probably doesn’t matter all that much, as long as we pray, right? Was just wondering about chaplets as I’ve just “scratched the surface” learning about them.
thanks & blessings,
