Chaplet of St. Philomena
This chaplet or Little Crown of Saint Philomena is made up of three white beads; a token of her virginity and purity and thirteen red beads to signify her martyrdom. (You can use a regular rosary and count off the number of beads needed.)
On the medal say the Apostles Creed to ask for the grace of Faith.
On each of the white beads say an Our Father in honor of the three Divine Persons of the Blessed Trinity in thanksgiving for all favors obtained through her intercession.
On each of the 13 red beads, which commerate the thirteen years that
St. Philomena spent on earth, say the following prayer:
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. St, Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Amen.
In conclusion say:
Hail, O illustrious St. Philomena, who shed so courageously your blood for Christ! I bless the Lord for all the graces He has bestowed upon thee during thy life, and especially at thy death. I praise and glorify Him for the honor and power with which He has crowned thee, and I beg thee to obtain for me from God the graces I ask through thy intercession.
