The Warrior – Saint Michael Chaplet

(2 customer reviews)


The bold black of this chaplet is a constant reminder of our need for the help of the angels in our journey to heaven. Made from durable and flexible steel wire, this chaplet is set to last him a long long time. The genuine stone beads add a weight and gravitas to the rosary that makes it totally unique from most other chaplets.

The salutations can be easily found on the iBreviary app so you can pray anywhere.


In the unlikely event that this chaplet should break, simply gather all the beads you can find and email me. You only pay for shipping and the replacement of missing parts; major beads and the medals.


This bold chaplet is not designed for the faint of heart. With brilliant matte black beads coupled with large polished striped agate beads, this is a warrior’s chaplet.

Saint Michael is the warrior of Heaven. He leads the whole Heavenly Host even though he is, by nature, a lowly Archangel. But by God’s grace, Michael cast Satan out of Heaven and continues to lead all the Angels.

He has been protecting Israel since the beginning. Whenever an Angel of the Lord is mentioned in the Old Testament, tradition holds that this is Michael; even the pillar of fire.

He continues to protect God’s chosen people today; us in the Universal Church. He is vigilant with us, helping and guiding us to heaven.


The Saint Michael chaplet has a fascinating history dating back to Portuguese Carmelite Antonia d’Astonac who had a vision of Saint Michael that was approved by Pope Pius XI in 1851. Saint Michael asked her to honor the nine choirs of angels with specific salutations, coupling each salutation with one Our Father and three Hail Mary’s. 

Saint Michael promised that whomever would practice this devotion daily would have an escort of nine angels (one from each choir) accompanying them as they receive Holy Communion, deliverance from purgatory for them and their family, and Saint Michael’s and all the angels’ assistance during their earthly life.

With a mixture of 8mm matte black agate beads and 10mm polished striped agate beads, it’s easy to feel the transition from one choir to the next. Overall, the 8mm beads are roughly the same size as standard rosary beads, so they fit comfortably in your hand.


At 16 inches long, with 8mm beads, this chaplet is roughly the same size as your standard rosary. The rosary 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 rosary, 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 like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.


Features of the chaplet:

Center piece: 1″x3/4″ silver oxidized Saint Michael centerpiece with “Pray for us” on the reverse

Crucifix: 1-1/2″x1″ silver oxidized crucifix with Benedictine medal

Hail Mary beads: 8mm matte black agate

Our Father beads: 10mm striped black agate

Spacers: 4mm clear glass and silver oxidized spacers

You begin this chaplet with the Saint Michael centerpiece where you make the sign of the cross as you say “O God come to my assistance, O Lord make haste to help me. Glory Be to the Father…”

You begin to the left in the direction of the first large bead. Before each of these beads, pray the  appropriate salutation, then continue with the Our Father and Hail Mary’s.

The 1st Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may it please God to make us worthy to receive into our hearts the fire of His perfect charity. Amen.”

The 2nd Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim, may God grant us the grace to abandon the ways of sin and follow the path of Christian perfection. Amen.”

The 3rd Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones, may it please God to infuse into our hearts a true and earnest spirit of humility. Amen.”

The 4th Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominations, may it please God to grant us the grace to have dominion over our senses and to correct our depraved passions.  Amen.”

The 5th Salutation: “Through the  intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues, may our Lord keep us from falling into temptation and deliver us from evil.  Amen.”

The 6th Salutation: “Through the  intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may God vouchsafe to keep our souls from the wiles and the temptation of the devil.  Amen.”

The 7th Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities, may it please God to fill our hearts with a spirit of true and hearty obedience.  Amen.”

The 8th Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial choir of Archangels, may it please God to grant us the grace of perseverance in the faith and in all good works that we may thereby be enabled to attain unto the Glory of Paradise. Amen.”

The 9th Salutation: “Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels, may God vouchsafe to grant that they may protect us during life and after death may lead us into the everlasting glory of heaven.  Amen.”

After the nine salutations, four final Our Fathers are said; one in honor of St. Michael the Archangel, one  St. Gabriel the Archangel, St. Raphael the Archangel, and your specific Guardian Angel respectively. These are the four white quartzite beads between the centerpiece and crucifix.

End with the Sign of the Cross or these final prayers

St. Michael glorious Prince chief and champion of the Heavenly Hosts. Guardian of the souls of men, conqueror of  the rebellious angels, steward of the Palace of God, under our Divine King Jesus Christ; our worthy leader, endowed with superhuman excellence and virtue; vouchsafe to free us from all evil, who with full confidence have recourse to thee; and by thy incomparable protection enable us to make progress everyday in the faithful service of our God. Amen.

V. Pray for us, O most blessed St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.

R. That we may be made worthy of His promises.

Almighty and Eternal God,  Who in Thine Own marvelous goodness and pity, didst, for the common salvation of men, choose thy glorious Archangel Michael, to be the Prince of Thy Church; make us worthy, we pray Thee, to be delivered by His beneficent protection from all our enemies, that at the hour of our death, none of them may approach to harm us; rather do Thou vouchsafe unto us that by the same Archangel Michael, we may be introduced into the Presence of Thy Most High and Divine Majesty.  Through the Merits of the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
