Saint Barbara Chaplet Prayer

Saint Barbara chaplet information

The Chaplet of Saint Barbara consists of 17 beads. The first three beads are said in honor of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These beads serve as a reminder of the three windows in the tower symbolizing the love Saint Barbara had for the Holy Trinity. The fourteen remaining beads are said to the Blessed Mother; they are placed on this chaplet for Saint Barbara as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Saint Barbara is often depicted carrying a chalice representing the Holy Eucharist and a palm branch or (feather) symbolizing martyrdom.

How to pray this chaplet:
Begin by kissing the Crucifix and making the sign of the Cross.

The Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

On The Crucifix:
Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day He arose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

On The Medal:
Prayer to Saint Barbara
Saint Barbara, your courage is much stronger than the forces of hurricanes and the power of lightening. Be always by our side so that we, like you, may face all storms, wars, trials and tribulations with the same fortitude with which you faced yours. O Beautiful Maiden once imprisoned in a high tower, protect us from the lightning and fire that rages in the sky and the discord of war. Keep us alert and protect us from the dangers that surround us. Holy Mary Mother of Jesus intercessor for us all; we pray to assure receiving of the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist at the hour of our death. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Amen

On The Feather:
Prayer before Martyrdom
Lord God almighty, Father of Jesus Christ, your dear Son through whom we have come to know you, God of the angels and powers, God of all creation, God of those who live in your presence, the race of the just: I bless you. You have considered me worthy of this day and hour, worthy to be numbered with the martyrs and to drink the cup of your Anointed One, and thus to rise and live-forever, body and soul, in the incorruptibility of the Holy Spirit.

Bead #1:
Come, Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of the faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the earth. Amen.

Bead #2:
Fatima Prayer:
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your Mercy. Amen.

Bead #3:
Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in Heaven; hallowed by Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen

On the Chalice:
Eucharistic Prayer
Most Holy Trinity, I adore you! My God, my God, I love you in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

14 Beads:
Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
