The Crown of Saint Michael Chaplet


The Crown of Saint Michael
This chaplet is known by many names, including the Chaplet of St. Michael, the Crown of St. Michael and the St. Michael Rosary and Prayer.
This chaplet was given to a devout servant of God, Antonia d'Astonac, in an apparition by St. Michael. Saint Michael the Archangel promised that by the honoring of the Nine Choirs of Angels in this chaplet devotion, along with diligence in attaining holiness, souls would have the escort of one representative of each of the Nine Choirs when approaching the Holy Table, and in addition, for the daily recital joined to courage in seeking holiness, Saint Michael the Archangel promised continual assistance from all the angels, and deliverance from Purgatory for themselves and their families.
