The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel is a string or prayer beads resulting from a private revelation by the Archangel Michael to the Portuguese Carmelite nun Antonia d’Astonaco. It was approved by Pope Pius IX in 1851 and was granted indulgences. Praying the chaplet is said to provide great benefits for those who pray it often, among which are the continuous assistance from Saint Michael the Archangel and the company of one angel of each of the nine celestial choirs when approaching communion. In addition, for those who would recite the Chaplet daily, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life. Praying the chaplet is also believed gradually to defeat demons and grant a pure heart.
