Description

Have you ever felt completely out of your depth when it comes to the Holy Spirit? Like the Father and Son are complicated enough, but the Spirit, who dwells within us? How can that be?

One thing that helped me was simply asking Him to explain. God is three in One. He’s the one who said that, the Church didn’t just decide that one day, it was Jesus.

So if He said it first, He’s going to be the best one to explain it. The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are all distinct persons (and yet One) and since they are distinct persons, you can just talk to the Spirit directly. He’s not an amorphous blob with no intelligence, He’s God.

The Church knows it’s complicated. So in 1892 a Franciscan Capuchin missionary who wanted to give his people a simple way to honor the third person of the Trinity formed this chaplet. It was approved in 1902 by Pope Leo XIII.

With a combination of red, orange, yellow and white agate beads, this chaplet was made to look like flames – an easy reminder of how the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles at Pentecost. As you pray this chaplet, ask the Holy Spirit to give you His Gifts –  Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety, Knowledge, and Fear of the Lord. As you begin your journey of Faith, focus on the Spiritual Gifts to build and strengthen your relationship with God. Don’t be shy. Be bold. And use this chaplet to help focus your prayer and bring you deeper in relationship to the Spirit.

So what is this chaplet? How do you pray it?

The chaplet is similar – on purpose – to the traditional rosary; five mysteries meditated upon with Our Fathers, Hail Mary’s, and Glory Be’s. The five groups commemorate the Five Wounds of Jesus which are the fountains of grace through which the Holy Spirit acts, though the mysteries focus on the action of the Holy Spirit in the life of Christ and the Church.

The mysteries are:
1. By the Holy Spirit is Jesus conceived of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
2. The Spirit of the Lord rested upon Jesus when he was baptized.
3. By the Spirit is Jesus led into the desert to be tempted by the Devil.
4. The Holy Ghost in the Church.
5. The Holy Ghost in the soul of the just man and just woman.

Keep reading for the meditations and practices that explain each mystery in depth, but first I want to explain how the chaplet is prayed – which prayers when. Each chaplet comes with an instruction pamphlet with the hymn and the mysteries!

The chaplet has 50 beads (a reminder of the 50 days between Easter and Pentecost). It begins with three red beads, followed by the 5 sets of 7 beads separated with two red beads.

On the first three beads you 1. Make the Sign of the Cross, 2. Say an Act of Contrition, and 3. Sing or say the Come Holy Ghost/ Veni Creator Spiritus hymn (below),

Then on the two red separator beads pray an Our Father and Hail Mary, and on the 7 beads pray 7 Glory Be’s.

Conclude with an Our Father and Hail Mary for the Pope’s intentions on the final two separator beads, and pray the Apostle’s Creed on the centerpiece.

___

Made with 8mm beads, this chaplet has the same sized beads as my other rosaries and you’ll find it a very comfortable size to pray with. The chapelt is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong and will last a lifetime of use. While I do strength test every chaplet, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).

The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in when the wire is placed in tension aka pulled on) so you will be able to slide the beads along as you pray.

THE FIRST MYSTERY

By the Holy Ghost is Jesus conceived of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Meditation: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Most High shall overshadow thee; and therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” [Lk. 1:35]

The Practice: Diligently implore the aid of the Divine Spirit, and Mary’s intercession, to imitate the virtues of Jesus Christ, Who is the Model of virtues, so that you may be made comformable to the image of the Son of God.

THE SECOND MYSTERY

The Spirit of the Lord rested upon Jesus when he was baptized.

The Meditation: “Jesus, being baptized, forthwith came out of the water: and lo! the heavens were opened to Him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon Him.” [Mt. 3:16]

The Practice: Hold in the highest esteem the priceless gift of sanctifying grace, infused into your soul by the Holy Ghost in Baptism. Keep the promises to which you then pledged yourself. Increase, by constant practice, Faith, Hope, and Charity. Ever live as becometh children of God and members of God’s true Church, so as to obtain, hereafter, the inheritance of heaven.

THE THIRD MYSTERY

By the Spirit is Jesus led into the desert to be tempted by the Devil.

The Meditation: “Jesus, being full of the Holy ghost, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the desert for the space of forty days; and was tempted by the devil.” [Lk. 4:1-2]

The Practice: Be ever grateful for the sevenfold gift of the Holy Ghost bestowed upon you in Confirmation, for the spirit of wisdom and understanding, of counsel and fortitude, of knowledge and piety, and of the fear of the Lord. Faithfully yield to His Divine guidance, so that, in all the trials and temptations of life, you may act manfully, as becometh a perfect Christian and valiant soldier of Jesus Christ.

THE FOURTH MYSTERY

The Holy Ghost in the Church.

The Meditation: “Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting… and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak… the wonderful works of God.” [Acts, 2:2, 4, 11.]

The Practice: Thank God for having made you a child of His Church which is ever animated and directed by the Divine Spirit, sent into this world for that purpose of the day of Pentecost. Hear and obey the Holy See, the infallible mouthpiece of the Holy Ghost, and the Church, the pillar and ground of truth. Uphold her doctrines, seek her interests, defend her rights.

THE FIFTH MYSTERY

The Holy Ghost in the soul of the just man and just woman.

The Meditation: “Know you not that you members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, Who is in you?” [1 Cor. 6:19] “Extinguish not the Spirit.” [1 Thess. 5:19] “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption.” [Eph. 4:30]

The Practice: Be ever mindful of the Holy Ghost Who is within you, and carefully cultivate purity of soul and body. Faithfully obey His Divine Inspirations so that you may bring forth the Fruits of the Spirit – Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience, Dignity, Goodness, Long-suffering, Mildness, Faith, Modesty, Continency, Chastity.

 

The hymn for “Come Holy Ghost”
Veni Creator Spiritus
1) Come Holy Ghost, Creator blest, and in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with they grace and heav’nly aid to fill the hearts which thou has made;
to fill the hearts which thou has made.

2) O Comforter, to thee we cry, thou heav’nly gift of God most high,
Thou Font of life and fire of love, and sweet anointing from above:
and sweet anointing from above.

3) Praise be to thee, Father and Son, and Holy Spirit, with them One:
And may the Son on us bestow the gifts that from the Spirit flow;
the gifts that from the Spirit flow.
