Hello, and welcome to New Word Day here on One Day | One Image. Today’s new word is “chaplet.”
A Chaplet is a form of Christian prayer which uses prayer beads. Some chaplets have a strong Marian element, others focus more directly on Jesus or the Saints. Chaplets are “personal devotionals.” They have no set form and vary considerably. In the Roman Catholic Church, while the usual five-decade Dominican rosary is a chaplet, often chaplets have fewer beads than a traditional rosary and a different set of prayers. In the Anglican Communion, a chaplet often includes one week of the Anglican rosary. (from Wikipedia)
Additionally, the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy uses ordinary rosary beads of five decades. (also from Wikipedia)
And candles? Candles are involved too, right? (from my brain, which doesn’t understand any of this)
