On each white bead, meditate on one of the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, praying two Hail Mary’s. On the purple beads recite: “Praised and blessed be Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.” On the medal conclude with: V. Pray for us, O Holy St. Joseph. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Let us pray: “O God, Who has predestined St. Joseph from all eternity for the service of Thy eternal Son and His Blessed Mother, and made him worthy to be the spouse of the Blessed Virgin and the foster-father of Thy Son: we beseech Thee, through all the services he has rendered to Jesus and Mary on earth, that Thou wouldst make us worthy of his intercession and grant us to enjoy the happiness of his company in Heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.” For this chaplet, the white beads symbolize St. Joseph's purity and the purple his piety. St. Joseph is the patron saint of the Catholic Church, workers, fathers, and a happy death.
