Chaplet of Jehudiel

A chaplet used to venerate and supplicate the archangel of the praise and labor of God, Jehudiel.  First published in this 2014 post.

The chaplet to be used is constructed of three lead beads with a medal of Saint Jehudiel, crucifix, or cross at the end, attached to a large bead on a ring of six sets of three beads.

Start the chaplet on the medal, and recite:

Saint Jehudiel the Archangel, angel of praise to God, pray for us, that in every act, in every job, in every work, and in every labor we may constantly carry out the will of the Lord gladly and in praise for all He has given us.  Amen.

On each of the three lead beads, pray the Hail Mary.

On the large bead, if desired, silently pray the Our Father, Glory Be, or another personal invocation to Saint Jehudiel.

On the six sets of three beads, pray one of the six praises from Psalm 150, each followed by an Our Father and a Glory Be.

  1. First Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Praise God in his sanctuary; praise Him in the firmament of His power.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.
  2. Second Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to His abundant greatness.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.
  3. Third Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Praise Him with the blast of the horn; praise Him with the psaltery and harp.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.
  4. Fourth Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and the pipe.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.
  5. Fifth Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Praise Him with loud-sounding cymbals; praise Him with clanging cymbals.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.
  6. Sixth Triplet
    1. Hallelujah!  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Hallelujah!
    2. Our Father, &c.
    3. Glory Be, &c.

Conclude with the following prayer:

O merciful Archangel, Saint Jehudiel dispenser of God’s eternal and abundant mercy, because of our sinfulness, we do not deserve God’s forgiveness.  Yet, He continually grants us forbearance freely and lovingly.  Help us in our determination to overcome our sinful habits and be truly sorry for them.  Bring each one of us to true conversion of heart, that we may experience the joy of reconciliation which it brings, without which neither we as individuals, nor the whole world can know true peace.  You who continually intercedes for us, aid us in our work, labor, and toil, that we may continually praise God in this world as the angels praise God in Heaven, that all we do may be right in intent and right in method, that the will of the Lord be done and not our own lest it be in accordance with His.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord, amen.
