St Michael Chaplet
Praying the chaplet is said to provide the assistance from Saint Micael the Archangel and the company of one angel from each of the nine celestial choirs when approaching Holy Communion. In addition, for those who recite the Chaplet Daily, he promised his continual asssistance to defeat demons and grant a Pure Heart thus delivering from Purgatory. These blessings extend to the direct family.
The Chaplet begins with an act of contrition. Then there are nine salutations, one for each choir of angels, each one followed by an Our Father and three Hail Marys. These are followed by four Our Fathers, honouring Saints Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and the Guardian Angel. The chaplet concludes with a prayer to Saint Michael.
